Spicy Roasted Nuts

makes about 2 cups/500 mL

Nuts are a good choice when you’re looking for a healthy fat with protein and fiber—which is what we all should be looking for! This recipe is super simple and the big-flavored nuts are just right with a glass of red wine. It’s a good idea to keep a batch of these on hand for whenever the urge strikes.


  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 9 oz/250 g raw mixed nuts (about 2 cups/500 mL)
  • Salt flakes or coarse crystals


  1. Assemble and measure ingredients. Preheat oven to 300°F/150°C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine olive oil with salt, cumin, ginger, chili powder, cayenne, and cinnamon. Toss nuts in spice mixture to coat well. Spread nuts in a single layer on lined baking sheet and roast for 10-15 minutes, or until fragrant and dark brown in places. Watch carefully to avoid burning.
  3. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes on pan before sprinkling lightly with salt flakes or crystals. Let cool completely.
  4. To serve, place nuts in a small bowl. Leftovers keep very well in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
