Spicy Herby Garlic Roasted Nuts
I basically came up with this recipe because I found a cute jar for £2 in Asda and wanted to buy it. Yep, I’m that ridiculous, I bought the jar first, then forced myself to think of something useful to fill it with in order to justify the purchase. I’m always looking for a savoury snack to chomp on at work that isn’t crisps. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still gonna eat crisps, but I figured if I keep a jar of something healthy and long lasting on my desk, it might encourage me to make a healthy decision every now and again. And thus the Spicy Herby Garlic Roasted Nuts were born.
500g raw mixed nuts - anything you like
Tablespoon of oil
Chuck nuts in baking tray
Add the sprigs of rosemary
Sprinkle your spices (be generous, you need to really coat the nuts to get the flavour)
Drizzle with oil
Shake it all about
Bake in oven at 200 degrees for 12 minutes
Wait to cool down, then place in your silly jar
And you’re done. If you’re a big savoury fan like me, these should help to satisfy those 4pm hunger pangs. Plus the protein hit you’re getting from the nuts is great for veggies, flexies, pescies and vegans alike.
