Curry Spiced Nuts

Nuts are pretty great as they come, but every so often I love to toast them in herbs or spices to give them a little extra something.

A Zero Waste Life. Spiced Nuts

Packets of crisps are a no go since I’ve given up things in single use packaging. I like to think of this snack as a similar sort of vibe to crisps especially as you can change the herbs and spices to suit your taste.

I toast mine on the hob, as I don’t do many servings at once, and it also means I can keep an eye on them. If you want to toast loads at once, it may well be with toasting in the oven. Toast nuts in the oven at about 170°c and check on them every 5 minuets to avoid charcoal nuts.
