I'm a Corrie fan - yes, it's true. (That's Coronation Street, in case you didn't know.) Hubby tapes the repeat episodes every Sunday so I can catch up during the week while I iron, fold laundry, or cook. (The glamorous life of a cookbook author, hey?!) :)
But really, it's my favorite show. I love the 'real' people, the story lines, and of course, the dialect and lingo. These Softly Spiced Nuts would be a perfect nibbler 'at pub' (aka Rovers Return), but of course most spiced nuts are made with egg whites, so a word of caution if you think those nuts must automatically be vegan.
With this recipe, the nuts aren't over seasoned. The taste of the nuts still comes through, and you aren't left with a heavy spicy taste. Our oldest girl said "mom, I love these - mmmm, you need to put these in your recipe book - mom, you make the best food".
Awww, how sweet, 'ta, luv'.
Makes up for her asking for another napkin last night so she could inconspicuously spit out some of her veggie burgers... you know, because of the "red things" (red pepper)... which, by the way, were diced into tiny pieces. And sauteed. And partially pureed into a patty. Ah yes, they always loooove my food. It's so rewarding.
Can you tell I feel a bit of a nutter today? Fit for a stroll on Coronation Street...
