Roasted Nuts: a super simple yet delicious and nutritious recipe, just in time for your any occasion party or a treat to pack up for when you are at work at 3pm and hangry kicks in. The recipe calls for certain nuts but use whatever you like, just mix it up. We make this at the holidays and for dinner parties and it is always a big hit.
1-cup raw almonds
1-cup raw cashews
Either leave them whole or use them in pieces.
Butter- ½ stick – totally optional but don’t be afraid to use it occasionally
½ teaspoonful cayenne pepper
3-4 teaspoonfuls fresh rosemary – stem removed-chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place all nuts in a mixing bowl and coat lightly with avocado oil.
Add melted butter if using and mix well
Add salt to taste, pepper if desired, cayenne and rosemary.
Spread on un-greased cookie sheet
Bake 12-15 minutes. Turn nuts.
Bake until you smell them –usually another 3-5 minutes. Once you smell them they are mostly done. Be careful- once you smell them it is a quick step to burning them.
Let Cool and feast!
