Spicy Roasted Pecans and Walnuts
By March I am ready for lighter eating and for me this translates to a detox that is heavy on plant-based whole foods. My protein loving body still needs that satiation which has me reaching for nuts mid-afternoon. It was an early March nut craving when raw almonds just did't sound so appealing that led me to whip up these addictive, peppery dry roasted nuts. You'll want to portion control these as you could practically eat the whole batch in one sitting!

    3. Let the nuts cool prior to storing in an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator as walnuts and pecans go rancid easily.
