This quick and easy snack is the perfect way to add a little zest to your day!
-Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
-Mix cumin, chili powder, curry powder, garlic powder, cayenne, ginger, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
-Heat oil in a small skillet over low heat. Add the spice mixture and stir well. Simmer to mellow the flavors, approximately 3-4 minutes.
-Place nuts in a mixing bowl. Pour spiced oil mixture over, and stir well to coat nuts. Spread the nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice during baking.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and using a spatula, toss the nuts with any spices and oil that have accumulated on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle with the salt while the nuts are still warm. Let rest for 2 hours in a cool place. Store in airtight jars, where nuts will stay tasty for up to 2 weeks. Enjoy!
