A toast to the super roast
Our number 1 tip for these natural and organic nuts and seeds has to be: get roasting your very own flavours! It's quick, easy, unbelievably tasty, and always goes down a treat with family, friends and guests.
Our loose recipe template
Squeeze half a lime, or lemon, onto every 4 or 5 handfuls of your favourite seeds and nuts. Add your own inventive mixes of spice and herbs into the mix! Crushed cumin, fennel, coriander, garlic and black pepper always work amazingly, while chili, turmeric and curry powders of all kinds prove pretty special too.
Stir them around & let the juices soak in for a while. This should help your chosen flavourings stick to the seeds and nuts too. Sprinkle in a tiny hint of cinnamon, ginger, mint or cacao (practically whatever else you fancy) to round off your super snack!
Roast on a tray or oven friendly dish, above 200 degrees Celsius, for anything between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on your preferred texture and taste. For a consistent crunch factor, don't forget to give them a shake or stir a few times throughout cooking.
Remove, serve and tuck in! Be careful not to burn your mouth, or to eat it all at once (that is, if you're supposed to be sharing).
The great snacking all-rounders
Eating seeds is almost a pastime activity in itself. Nuts are perhaps even more popular, with many of our customers and staff often snacking on these little gems. Both seeds and nuts are pretty healthy snack foods, providing a great alternative to crisps, cakes, sweets and other foods that are high in salt, sugar, fat and unhealthy oils. Just be sure to enjoy them as part of a naturally balanced diet plan!
