Spiced Nuts!

by Kris Pitcher

I'm always looking for something halfway nutritious to take to parties, as hostess gifts, or to the potluck at work. Spiced nuts fits the bill, and they are super easy to make.

  • 1 pound almonds & walnuts mixed
  • 1 T brown sugar
  • 1/2 T coarse salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 T extra-virgin olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread nuts on baking sheet and roast for 10 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients in small bowl. Transfer nuts to large bowl, add oil mixing to coat completely. Add spice mixture and mix. Done! Serve warm or let cool.

You can eliminate the sugar if you want to, or experiment with different spices and herbs. There are no rules here. Go nuts!
