- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/4 tsp tumeric
- 1/4 tsp sage powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1 1/2 cup raw almonds
- 1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil
- Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Put almonds in a strainer over a bowl.
- Drizzle oil over them conservatively, while tossing them around with your fingers. Stop pouring when the nuts have been mostly coated with the oil and then toss around the rest of the way until they appear to be thoroughly coated. Try not to do too much oil. You just need enough to hold the seasoning to the almonds. If you think you've overdone it, get a paper towel or cloth and rub the bottom of the strainer while tossing the nuts around to gently remove the excess oil. Let the nuts sit in the strainer while you prepare the dry mix.
- Add the salt, pepper, garlic, sage, onion, mustard and turmeric powders together in a bowl and give it a good mix.
- Throw the oil coated nuts in the bowl of seasoning and toss until nuts are thoroughly coated with the seasoning.
- Spread the nuts out on a baking sheet (lined or not), making sure you just have one layer.
- Bake for 10 minutes, giving them a good mix half way through. When you take them out, they should have a mild sort of hissing sound.
- Let cool, and enjoy!
