Cajun Spiced Walnuts

A spicy kick makes these just the ticket as a pre-dinner nibble with drinks, or a snack any time. Prepare them a day ahead if you can, as the flavors blend and mellow overnight.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large egg white
  • 1½ tsp garlic salt (or 3/4 tsp garlic powder and 3/4 tsp salt)
  • 1½ tsp mixed dried herbs
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 4 cups (1 pound) walnut halves and/or pieces

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a shallow baking dish or cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray or line with silicone sheet.

In a large bowl place the egg white, garlic salt, herbs, cayenne, and paprika. Beat with a whisk or fork until blended. Add the walnuts and toss until they are evenly coated, then spread in the prepared baking pan.

Bake about 18 minutes, stirring once after 9 minutes, until the nuts look dry and toasted. Remove from the oven and cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Makes 4 cups.
