I have made these spiced almonds several times now and they are great as a snack and when entertaining. The recipe is very versatile – swap out the almonds for cashews or another nut if you like!
1/2 t cumin (or increase to 1t if you are particularly fond of cumin)
1/2 t smoked paprika
1/2 t garlic powder
a grind of salt and pepper
1.5 cups of whole almonds
Heat oil and spices in a small saucepan until just hot and smelling incredible.
Add nuts and stir continuously until all nuts are coated and heated through.
Serve when cooled (if you can exercise restraint for that long!).
These nuts are easy to make, delicious and great for the holiday season.
