Method

 

Herb Roasted Almonds & Pumpkin Seeds

 

PREHEAT oven to 350F | 180C.  LINE sheet pan with parchment paper.

 

MIX all ingredients well until completely coated.

 

SPREAD on a sheet pan in a single layer. 

 

ROAST in preheated oven for 7 – 10 mins until golden. 

 

WATCH CLOSELY after 5 mins; they can burn quickly.  Leave to cool on the sheet pan.

 

STORE in an airtight container; I store all my nuts + seeds in the freezer, both raw and roasted, to maintain maximum freshness.

*HERBS use mixed dried herbs or fresh, finely chopped mixed or single herbs.

 

MAKE AHEAD and double the batch, and freeze.

 

STORAGE I store all my nuts + seeds in the freezer to ensure they taste fresh. Nuts + seeds are full of healthful oils, and these oils are volatile and can turn rancid quickly; nuts are expensive, so I think the freezer space they take up is worth it.
