Spiced AlmondsPosted: October 12, 2010
From May 2, 2009: I have been in a cooking rut lately. I’m so busy, tired, and stressed out that I have not been cooking much of anything and certainly not anything new. Now that school is wrapping down, I am looking forward to getting back into cooking . I think my hubby is looking forward to that too. 🙂 In an effort to get back on track, I made these spiced almonds this morning. Great for snacking or for adding to salads. Try this recipe with other nuts or a combination of nuts for something different.
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon chile powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 to 1 1/2 cups raw almonds
3 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the spices and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the almonds, sugar, and salt. Mix to coat the almonds and then spread the nuts on a baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes. Serve warm or cooled. Store in an airtight container.
