You didn’t think we could go all week without some mention of nuts, did you? I mean, come on. It is Fit Bottomed Dude’s Week! So, of course, we have to share this roasted nut recipe from Fit Bottomed Eats. Have to…
Can’t Get Enough of these Roasted Nuts
We’ve always known that roasted nuts were good. But after we ran this roasted almonds recipe, it was just one of those “Um, why don’t I make those more often?” kind of deals. And then, a week or so later, my husband and I were at one of our favorite places in Kansas City, Bier Station. Despite the fact that this place has an ah-mazing beer selection, because I’m mostly off the gluten these days, I stick to the vino, enjoy the company and do my best to not stare longingly at the soft pretzels they have brought in from Farm to Market Bread. But recently, I realized that Bier Station offers a Roasted Nut Trio—simply walnuts, pecans and almonds, roasted to warm and toasty perfection with butter, salt and pepper. No gluten! And so, so tasty.
In fact, these roasted nuts were so good that I had no choice but to start making them at home, or I’d go broke from Bier Station bar tabs. Ryan and I’s first experiment with roasted nuts was this Paleo recipe for Spiced Nuts from Elana’s Pantry. With just chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper and olive oil, it made for a quick and easy addictive snack. We didn’t happen to have the exact called for mix of nuts in our pantry, so we adapted this recipe to two cups of the nuts we did have. Which ended up being a hodgepodge of almonds, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts and cashews. And the results? Healthy obsession worthy. Obviously.
