I might be the minority, but I like savory flavored roasted nuts better than sweet flavored roasted ones. That’s why spicy roasted nuts are right up my ally.
This spicy nut recipe is super simple and easy to make. It won’t take up much time. After all I feel that is what snacks are suppose to be for right? Quick and easy. These spicy roasted nuts are great to add as a snack in between meals, to add to a salad, or to serve during a game day party (along with beer if you are anything like my dad).
Vegan Curve Building Ingredients
For this spicy roasted nut recipe I used peanuts but if you can use any nuts you desire (especially cashews; they really work well with this). Make sure the nuts you use are raw and and unsalted since you will be roasting them yourself. Peanuts has 38 grams of protein per cup.
This seasoning is my FAVORITE mixture. I used it in my black eyed pea soup recipe for the new year. It gives the right amount of spice and other flavors.
This is to help balance out the salt and spice.
This is adds a slight sweetness again to help bring it to balance but it’s more so to help the seasoning “stick” to the nuts.
What doesn’t taste good with vegan butter? This calorie dense food helps keep the nuts from being too dry.
First add your seasoning to a bowl of unsalted raw nuts and mix together with your hands. Then you take melted butter, syrup, and thyme and pour over nuts coating evenly. Grab a parchment paper and spread nuts evenly on pan and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. That’s it!
I recommend allowing nuts to cool before digging in (I know it will be hard to do but try!) In fact if you make them a day before and store them overnight (in the refrigerator) The flavors will really soak in! Enjoy!
