Craving For A Spicy But Healthy Snack?

Spiced nuts are a favorite snack for many. I know they are mine! Spicy nuts are healthy but if you have noticed most of them purchased from outside have a lot of salt in them. This is not exactly good for those people who have a high blood pressure and are looking towards controlling their diet. The good news is that you don't have to stay away from spiced nuts at all if you are on a low salt diet. You can prepare your own spiced nuts snack at home -- that too with no salt whatsoever!

The preparation is really simple and within 10-15 minutes you will have your own spicy nuts snack! They are very easy to make and you can even prepare them well in advance if you have any party or a get-together. Low salt spiced nuts are not only healthy but also make a great party snack.

It is best to prepare these low salt spiced nuts 2 weeks in advance in order to get the best flavor. You can store them in an airtight container after preparation.

Ingredients

So what all do you need to make low salt spiced nuts?

  • 2 tablespoons corn/vegetable oil
  • Shelled and husked fresh peanuts
  • Blanched almonds
  • Shelled and husked fresh cashew nuts
  • Half teaspoon ground ginger
  • Half teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Half teaspoon cayenne pepper

If you are looking for a variation, try using hazelnuts instead of cashew nuts. Use ground cumin, cardamom, cumin and chilli powder instead of the ginger, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper.

Low Salt Spiced Nuts Recipe

How you can make your own spiced nuts -

  1. Take a large frying pan and heat the oil in it.
  2. Put all the nuts into the hot oil and make sure that they are all coated nicely with oil.
  3. Add all the spices and again stir well till all the nuts are coated.

Tip - In order to prevent the nuts from getting burnt out, make sure to turn them once or twice during cooking time.

      This sounds TASTY: But in accordance with the normal stupidity of the US government, lately there have been news feeds that Salt ain't that bad after all. Like those that use salt are statistically healthier, have stronger hearts. Sort of like the margarine scam. They got everyone to stop using butter and using margarine and its really bad for you. So, what's a person to do.? Just eat what you feel like eating.

      Tasty! But you know how the government is always recommending certain things for our health, for instance margarine? Well of course we now know that margarine is the worst possible thing for you, WELL, lately I've been hearing news that salt, ain't all that bad, in fact statistics show healthier hearts for those that use salt. So, again, conflicting stupid information.
