I'm looking for recipes for Savory Nuts, without a lot of butter and without sugar or sweetener. I have some mixed nuts in the shell and want to prepare them in a healthy way. (I've taken them out of the shell)
Mon, February 21, 2011 - 7:09 PMI'm not sure what you mean by savory nuts, but I've been experimenting with soaking and drying raw nuts in a light salt brine. The stuff I read said not to soak/sprout cashews, but they turned out to be my absolute favorite soaked. They get all soft and chewy and meaty like - almost having a pasture taste to them, if that makes any sense.
I'm not normally a big fan of cashews but I can eat these for days. I think I soaked them overnight in a light brine then dried them at the lowest setting on my oven. Add spices during the drying stage, if you want.

1 C. nuts
1 T. corn oil
1 t. curry powder
Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Combine all ingredients and mix until the nuts are thoroughly coated. Spread in a single layer on a cooking sheet, and bake for about 15 minutes.
I've used pecans and hazelnuts, and they both work great. You can also screw around with the seasoning a lot. Another thought would be to roast them first and then mix with the oil and spices. I'll try that next.
