Festive nuts

I only ever make these tamari nuts at this time of the year. They are, however, delicious in any season. Enjoy!

As with all my recipes, don’t get too caught up in the measurements. One of the joys of cooking is ‘free-forming’.

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely grated/crushed
  • 2 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tbsp salt flakes (optional)
  • 4 tbsp tamari (Japanese-style soy sauce)
  • 180g whole almonds
  • 180g macadamia nuts
  • 40g sesame seeds

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees fan-forced or 200 degrees conventional.

2. In a large bowl, mix the garlic, ginger, curry powder, salt and tamari until combined.

3. Spread the nuts and sesame seeds on a baking tray and roast for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and toss through the tamari mix until evenly coated, then roast for about another 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them — you want some colour but they can go from perfect to burnt quite quickly. Cool completely, then store in an airtight container.
