Salted Sunflower Seeds

This hardly calls for a post but I’m still going to write one, because I have discovered the joy of eating freshly roasted sunflower seeds. No I am serious.. πŸ™‚ it is just roasted sunflower seeds! But I’ve been thinking for a while, correction, my mom has been thinking about it for a while ;), why buy pre-roasted stuff which could potentially have all sorts of additives to keep it fresh? Instead, buy raw, and roast as and when needed!

We’ve been popping these seeds as snacks, in salads, just cause ;)… And since it takes barely 5-10 minutes plus time to cool, this should be the way we roast and use the seeds anyways. I’ve been meaning to salt and roast almonds, pistachios etc… Will update if successful!

Salted Sunflower Seeds

Makes: 1/2 cup salted sunflower seeds
Ready in: 10 minutes


  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/4 tsp salt


1. Mix the salt in the water until well combined.

2. Add the sunflower seeds to the water and coat them well.

3. Spread them out on a plate such that they make a single layer of seeds. Microwave the seeds for 4 minutes. If they aren’t crunchy and roasted, then put them back and roast them in increments of 30 secs – 1min. I had to microwave them for a total of 6 minutes with mixing them up occasionally.

    I LOVE freshly roasted nuts, once picked walnuts, then brought them home and toasted them… they were divine!
