Spiced Roasted Nuts
There's something so irresistible about homemade roasted nuts. The huge flavours permeate the air as they roast and you can tweak all the flavours to your liking.
Nuts are lovely on their own, but roasted with herbs and spices? BOOM - crunchy amazingness.
The only sad thing as I write this is that I don't have any left to nibble at as I type. I really must make amends to that tomorrow and whip up another batch.
Luckily, this spiced nuts recipe only take 20 minutes to make, and they're super easy.
There are some pretty incredible flavours all at work in these spiced roasted nuts. I've tweaked the recipe many times and this is my ultimate blend of sweet/savoury/umami/spicy/salty and simply mind-blowing deliciousness.
The candied nuts cool down to become crunchy little flavour bombs.
You will need:
mixed raw unsalted nuts
mixed raw unsalted seeds

- These candied nuts should last for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
- Make it vegan: this recipe is naturally vegan.
