These Smoky Spicy Walnuts get toasted in the oven after getting coated in a warm, spicy blend of curry powder, soy sauce and butter to name a few amazing ingredients. Rather addicting, these are fantastic for parties, afternoon snacks and Game Day eats.
I’m excited that today’s post is sponsored by my friends over at California Walnut Board. Walnuts are so versatile not only for snacking ideas, but in cooking and baking uses.
Did you know that more than 99% of the walnuts in U.S. are grown in the fertile soils of California’s Central Valley. Internationally, California walnuts supply three-quarters of the world’s walnut trade. Pretty amazing!
With only 6 ingredients added to spice up these California Walnuts they still shine through in flavor. I mixed up some of my favorite ingredients like soy sauce, Tabasco, curry powder and butter to coat the walnut before toasting in the oven. The aroma that fills the kitchen is wonderful.
I store these Spicy Walnuts in an airtight container can keep them on hand for parties, snacking and sprinkling on salads.
Did you know the California Walnut Board, established in 1948, and the California Walnut Commission, established in 1987, represent the interests of the 4000+ walnut growers and the nearly 100 handlers spread across California’s Central Valley.
The industry generates $1.4 billion in farm gate revenue and supports some 60,000 jobs directly and indirectly.
Needless to say walnuts are a great snack and my Smoky Spicy Walnuts are a house favorite. Besides being a great snack they are good for you.
Walnuts are the only nut significantly high in ALA Omega-3s. Omega-3s are essential fatty acids critical to various body processes. Learn more about the nutritional benefits in one ounce of walnuts here.
