Spiced Mixed Nuts

Here is one of the recipes I promised from my cooking class. The recipe comes from Ellie Krieger's new cookbook, The Food You Crave. Although I haven't personally made these, the recipe looks very easy and also seems like something that would be easy to change to suit your tastes.


Food 071

Spiced Mixed Nuts
Makes 2 cups

1/2 c raw pecans
1/2 c raw almonds
1/3 c shelled pistachios
1/3 c raw cashews
1/3 c shelled raw pumpkin seeds
1 tbsp pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine nuts and seeds in a medium-sized bowl. Add syrup and spices and toss to combine. Spread out on a lightly greased cookie sheet and spread out in a single layer. Bake, stirring once, until nuts are lightly toasted, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. These will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
