I _know_ I've seen a recipe somewhere for raw hot and spicy nut mix but now I can't find it anywhere. Do you know where I can look?
I'm so glad I browsed through the recipe section! I saw your post and I would LOVE to get that recipe too!
Please oh please, who has the recipe for a hot and spicy nut mix???

I've found these recipes haven't had time to try them out yet though.... I can't remember where I found the first one.... :(
Hope you'll like'em :)
Party Nut Mix
Serves 10 or more
2 cups dehydrated almonds (measure after soaking and drying)
1 cup dehydrated pecans (measure after soaking and drying)
1 cup dehydrated walnuts (measure after soaking and drying)
1/4 tsp. Cayenne pepper
1 tsp. Celery seed
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Chili powder
1 tsp. Onion powder
2 Tbs. wheat free tamari or Nama Shoyu soy sauce or 3/4 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt <products/celtic_sea_salt.shtml>
1 Tbs. olive oil
3 Tbs. Rapadura, honey or agave nectar
Mix everything together in a bowl and spread onto a dehydrator tray (no need for Teflex sheets). Dehydrate 2-3 hours, then remove Teflex sheet, and dry another hour or 2 until dry. If you do not dry the nuts ahead of time, you will need to dry the mixture for at least 36 hours so that the almonds are completely dry.
Store cooled nuts at room temperature in a sealed glass jar for 1 month, or refrigerate for up to 1 year.
Put in clear or printed cellophane bags from a party store and tie with a beautiful ribbon. Make a label on your computer with the ingredients and an explanation of why raw nuts are better than cooked (easier to digest and more usable by the body, i.e. less fattening).
Soak almonds 12 hours. Rinse well and drain. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 24-36 hours or until crispy. Soak walnuts and pecans for up to 24 hours. Rinse well every 8 hours.
Dehydrate 12 + hours until dry.
Tip: soak and dehydrate extra nuts for future use. Store cooled nuts in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Want some ideas for seasoning blends for your soaked nuts? You can use some of these combinations to marinate them before putting them in the dehydrator to make them crispy.
- Tamari Soy Sauce (tamari salty)
- Cinnamon and honey (sweet)
- Vanilla and cinnamon (sweet)
- Garlic powder and sea salt (salty)
- Chili powder, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, cilantro (spicy Mexican)
- Basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano (Italian, pizza)
- Figs, dates, Nama Shoyu, maple syrup, garlic, cayenne pepper (Teriyaki)
- Michelle, From SAD to RAW
They both ask for a dehydrator... don't have one, ai ai ai! :(
But thanks for posting! I'm sure others will LOVE these recipes!!
Anybody that makes these, let me know how they are!!
I'll stick to eating cashews with some sea salt for now (those are like my substitute for salty snacks like potato chips...)
