Crisp Sumac Spiced Nuts

© 2020 | | © 2020 |

Crisp walnuts and Brazil nuts glazed in spicy cayenne and citrusy, tangy sumac with coconut sugar make great party nibbles or as a topping for the salad, oatmeal or pancakes. Any mix of nuts (cashews, pecans, almonds) will work for this recipe—just be sure to allow them cool completely to ensure a crisp texture before serving or storing. Besides sumac, za'atar, a blend of herbs, salt, sesame seeds, cumin and sumac, would be another wonderful Middle Eastern condiment to spice up the nuts.

  • 1 1/2 tsp Sumac
  • 1/2 tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp Coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Black salt
  • 1 Large egg white
  • 200 g Walnuts
  • 100 g Brazil nuts
  1. Preheat oven to 150C/300F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, and set aside. Combine sumac, coconut sugar and black salt in a bowl.
  2. Beat egg white until very foamy. Stir in nuts, combining well. Add in sumac mixture until evenly coated. Spread coated nuts in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake nuts in middle of preheated oven, stirring at half time, until crisp and golden, about 30 to 35 minutes.
  4. Remove baking sheet from oven, and let cool completely. Break up nut clusters. Store nuts in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week. | © 2020 | | © 2020 |

This is a very interesting recipe. I tried a few times to make nuts coated in spices, but I never tried with egg whites. I will keep this in mind.

I love nuts like this. The flavors you suggest are great!

Kitchen Riffs 25/2/20 16:21

Really nice! Sumac is one of those spices I don't use that much. Odd, because I do like it -- but it's just not something I usually have on hand. I need to get some and play with it, though. Starting with this recipe! I love spiced nuts and these look terrific. Thanks!

Pam 25/2/20 17:18

Yum! What a terrific snack or salad topper.

I can't make any kind of spiced nuts because I eat them all! I can't stop. Love how you spiced these up Angie! Super delicious.

Oh Angie, this is brilliant...I love sumac but never thought is adding into nuts...I will definitely try it as I love the tart of the sumac with the spices.
Have a wonderful week!

I eat nuts almost daily so it's nice to find a delicious new way to serve them, Angie! I'm slowly trying to catch up since we were on vacation for two weeks recently. Don't think we'll be traveling again any time soon with the health concerns so glad to be Home Sweet Home again :)

Hot guys 14/3/20 18:55

Mmm, Angie... These look really good! :)

I mean, crisp nuts seem like a perfect snack. Just divine.

So... Can I have some? ^.^
