Rosemary roasted mixed nuts make a great holiday snack and finger food for your next get together. You're going to love this recipe because it's quick, easy, and flavorful.
Rosemary is a perfect complement to the chili and cayenne, and reminds me of the holidays. The maple glaze adds the perfect amount of sweetness to cut through the savory flavors.
Are you looking for some finger foods to put out this Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year's Eve? These roasted mixed nuts are the perfect choice.
Looking for fresh herbs like rosemary in the winter? My local grocery store sells small packages of fresh herbs in the produce department.
Fresh herbs are much more flavorful and aromatic than dried herbs, so I highly recommend grabbing a pack of fresh herbs before making this recipe.
Ingredients and substitutions
For this recipe, I used nuts that I had on hand - cashews, almonds, and pecans. However, you're welcome to use any nuts you like.
I recommend using raw nuts that haven't yet been seasoned.
If you don't have fresh rosemary or can't find it at your local grocery, it can be substituted with dried rosemary instead. Substitute 1 ½ tablespoons of fresh herbs with ½ tablespoon of dried herbs.
