Quick Gluten Free Snacks - Hot Nuts Anyone??

Published 6 October, 2006

As I pondered whether I should have red or white wine with my friend as we Stiched and Bitched (that's knitting to the uninitiated), I decided to knock up a quick gluten free snack, fondly known as hot nuts ;oO

Sesame seeds
pumpkin seeds
sunflower seeds
whole almonds
cashew nuts
chilli flakes
tamari (a gluten free soy sauce substitute)
fresh lemon juice

In a hot pan, lightly toast the sesame seed, just until they start to pop. Add the pumpkin seeds and toast for a further minute or so. Add all the other nuts and as much chilli flakes as you can bear, and stir frequently to prevent scorching. When all the nuts and seeds are hot, add a splash of tamari and the juice of a squeezed lemon - careful as it will sizzle! Serve hot with beer or wine. Alternatively you can sprinkle this over a salad.

An alternative quick gluten free snack is to use wasabi paste instead of chilli flakes. A different kind of burn, but just as tasty!
