Savory Rosemary Roasted Mixed Nuts are my new favorite snack – and will be yours too! Trust me on this. You’re going to love this recipe because it’s quick, easy, and oh-so addictive. These roasted nuts are savory, with a warm and mild spice flavor.
Rosemary is a perfect complement to the chili and cayenne, and reminds me of the holidays. A 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 beyond? These roasted mixed nuts are the perfect choice. I also have a few other recipes I love to bring out for the holidays. Quick Candied Pecans are easy to pull together in just a few minutes, and would make a great complement to the savory rosemary roasted mixed nuts. I also love these Honey Roasted Sesame Cashews – they have a nice blend of sweet and savory in one bite.
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. You’ll thank me later!
For this recipe, I used my favorite 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.
