While I’m not one to say no to sweets, I’m a salty snack girl all the way. From my Simple Seedy Crackers to my Healthy Homemade Cheez-Its and 3-Ingredient Almond Flour Crackers, I’m always looking for new ways to enjoy a savory afternoon pick-me-up. And since I add spice to pretty much everything, nuts are the perfect solution to enjoy all of that mouthwatering flavor.
For these Turmeric Spiced Nuts, I used a variety of what I had on hand, but you can certainly include whichever nuts you love best! But between the almonds, cashews, pecans and walnuts, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. The assortment of crunch and flavor had me devouring the whole batch in record time.
Plus, nuts of all sorts provide generous health benefits that’ll most definitely make this your new favorite snack. Each of those I included even top my list of nuts to consume for sustained health, which I break down in Why I’m Nuts About Nuts (& You Should be Too).
But the real reason this recipe is scary addictive comes from the flavor, with turmeric as the star of course. Not only does it add a touch of warmth and aroma, but this superfood is likewise renowned for its medicinal properties. The high level of antioxidants and incredible anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric protect the heart, brain, joints and more.
