One of my favorite parts about roasting delicious squash for a hearty Autumn soup is that you can you create a fantastic snack by toasting the seeds.  Do you remember toasting pumpkin seeds as a kid after carving pumpkins for Halloween?  Well it turns out pumpkins aren’t the only seeds that make tasty snacks.  Pretty much any squash can be used for toasting tasty seeds – these particular seeds happen to be from the buttercup squash, but I have also used acorn squash seeds – in fact, toasted acorn squash seeds are my absolute favorite!  So next time you are making a festive meal with some fresh squash, don’t forget about this delicious snack to make also!
