Spiced Roasted Nuts

These are a lovely and quick snack to serve with a glass of ice-cold fizz. A roaring fire and great company go well with them, too. They would also make a sweet present, perhaps packed into a small kilner jar, wrapped up with a festive ribbon.

serves 8


100g cashews*
100g whole almonds*
100g pumpkin seeds*
100g pecans*
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp honey
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp orange zest

*or substitute all the above nuts for 400g mixed nuts


Preheat the oven to 160°C.

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until the nuts and seeds are well coated.

Scatter the nuts onto a large, lined baking sheet.

Roast for 7 minutes (set a timer!) and then mix, before roasting for a further 7 minutes.

Remove, add a good grind of black pepper and allow to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container.
