Curried Roasted Nuts

Nuts are a staple at most holiday parties and dinners, but while cracking the ol’ tin of mixed nuts might impress your grand aunt, your friends are hoping for something a little bit more exciting. This simple spice blend is great on any style of nut, so mix up the quantities of each if you like (don’t like almonds? Try macadamia nuts!)

Ingredients

2 Tbs (30 mL) grapeseed oil
2 Tbs (30 mL) liquid honey
1 tsp yellow curry powder
¼ tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp ground turmeric
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup raw hazelnuts
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw pecan halves
1 cup raw walnut halves
To taste, salt and pepper

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325º F.

  2. Place the first 6 ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.

  3. Place nuts in a large bowl, pour oil and spice mixture over-top and stir well until the nuts are evenly coated.

  4. Spread coated nuts onto a large baking sheet and let roast in oven until nuts have browned, about 15-18 minutes.

  5. Remove from oven and transfer to paper towel to absorb any excess oil. Once cool, transfer to desired bowl and serve.
