Follow these two easy snack recipes. Your game experience will never be the same.
Roasted Spiced Almonds
- 2 cups of whole unroasted almonds
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- ½ teaspoon of spicy paprika
- ½ teaspoon of chili powder
- ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
- Heat the oven to 180 degrees and spread the almonds in a large baking pan lined with baking paper.
- Mix the almonds with the olive oil and the spices.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, remove from the oven and set it aside to cool down. When the almonds are warm, they will still be soft, but they will harden when they cool. Then, store in a sealed container at room temperature.
- Finally, put the roasted spiced almonds in a nice-looking bowl and serve.
Mix Spicy Caramel Nuts
- 1 KG mix of nuts and seeds according to personal taste and flavor (peanuts, almonds, nuts, hazelnuts, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, cashews etc. - everything goes, and the greater the variety the better)
- 1 cup of dark brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of ground chili
- 3 tablespoons of Moroccan paprika (spicy paprika in oil)
- Half a glass of water
- Heat the water, brown sugar, chili and paprika to a gentle boil. Remove from the flame, add nuts and stir.
- Spread over a baking pan with baking paper and roast at 170°c for about 10 minutes until the nuts are browned and caramelized.
- Every 3 minutes remove the pan from the oven and mix gently.
- Then cool them well. If the nuts are slightly stuck to each other, gently separate them.
- Finally, it’s time to eat!
