Hot, roasted spiced nuts, gently seasoned with fragrant, festive spices. Wonderful as a gift to friends this Christmas – if they make it out of the house, that is! Portion control went out of the window for me as soon as I removed these from the oven, and anything that was left was immediately demolished by the rest of my hungry family!
Spiced Nuts Ingredients:
- 400 grams mixed raw nuts (I used a mix of Almonds, Brazils and Pecans, but Cashews, Walnuts and Macadamia would work great too!)
- 1 egg white
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp unrefined molasses
- 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- ½ tsp ginger
- ½ tsp cloves
- ½ tsp sea salt
Spiced Nuts How To:
Preheat the oven to 150C / 300F / Gas mark 2. Line a large ovenproof tray with some baking parchment.
In a bowl, whisk the egg white until it becomes foamy. Stir in all the remaining ingredients, bar the nuts at this stage.
Now add the nuts to the spice mixture, using your hands to really coat them well. Lay them out on the baking tray, and place in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes, until golden brown. Stir once halfway through the cooking time.
Leave to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
