Sweet and Spicy Roasted Nuts

Sweet and spicy roasted nuts in a large green bowl on a wooden table.
Sweet and spicy roasted nuts. The same says it all. Mixed nuts are tossed with sugar, salt, cumin, red pepper flake and roasted to perfection. They're a terrific little nibble.

Ingredients 

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 egg white
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried red-pepper flakes
  • 2 cups mixed raw nuts of your choice

Directions 

  • Crank the oven to 300° (150°C). Line a lipped baking sheet with foil and coat the foil lightly with cooking spray.
  • Whisk the egg white until very foamy. Add the sugar, salt, cumin, and red-pepper flakes and whisk well. Stir in the nuts and coat completely.
  • Spread the nuts in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake until they're a deep golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes, stirring often.
  • Remove the sheet from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool. Break up any nutty clumps. The nuts can be made a week in advance. (Ha! Like they'll ever last that long.) Store in an airtight container.
