Once you’ve started eating these smoky spiced nuts you won’t be able to resist them. A delicious combination of hazelnuts, walnuts and cashews, these are perfect for parties or to give as a gift. Suitable for vegans.
I made spiced nuts as a welcome nibble for my first vegan supper club in early 2019.
Although I ate my way through several jars of test batches I still couldn’t stop eating them - spicy nuts are so good and so moreish.
That batch had more of an Indian flavour to it.
These ones are smokier. I find them utterly irresistible.
How difficult are spiced nuts to make?
They really couldn’t be easier. It’s just a case of mixing the nuts with a little oil, some spices and some salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
Once mixed the nuts are spread out onto a baking tray and cooked on a low heat.
