Curried Walnuts

It's been great day so far. I got my work out in, a short one - just 30 minutes on the treadmill. I wanted to run for at least three miles, but my right hip was giving me some grief. So I stopped running and just walked at 4.0 miles an hour for the rest of the time.

I came home and got to work on lunch. It didn't take much time, since it was my shrimp leftovers from the other night.

I know... white bread. Shame on me. French bread just goes so well with tomato sauces and shrimp. I don't even remember the last time I ate white bread. It's so fluffy!

D and I are going over to another couple's house to watch the hockey game tonight. They asked me to bring the salad. I decided to make a mixed green salad with apples and curried walnuts. One of my favorites! I have the second batch of walnuts cooking the oven as I write this post.

The first batch didn't work out so well...

Hence the second batch...

They came out beautifully! Probably due to the fact I didn't forget about them in the oven. ;)

Curried Walnuts:
  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp stevia/sugar 
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp hot curry powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper 
  1. Preheat over to 250 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray
  2. Pour egg white into a small bowl and whisk till frothy. Add the nuts and stir until they're coated with the egg white. 
  3. In another small bowl mix the sugar, salt and spices. Dust this mixture over the nuts. Make sure all the nuts are equally coated. 
  4. Lay them out on the  baking sheet and bake for about a half hour. 
They are so good on salad, especially with apples. The sweetness of the apples balances the heat of the spiced nuts. 

I'll chat with you all tomorrow!
