  • 1 can of nuts. Mixed nuts, peanuts, pecans, walnuts…let your nut brain run wild and choose your favorites! Three cups of nuts is about right.
  • Olive oil spray
  • 3 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Sea salt. If you use pre-roasted nuts from the can they are likely salted already and you can skip this step, but if you use walnuts and pecans from a bag you’ll probably want to salt them.
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne


Pour the nuts into an ovenproof pan. Spray with oil and toss. Sprinkle on the seasonings and toss thoroughly. Roast in your oven at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. When you start smelling that delicious aroma or spy a little browning around the edges, take them out of the oven.

You’ll know they’re done when the moisture from the Worcestershire sauce has soaked into the nuts. Now toss one more time. Cool on paper towels. You can even eat them warm and really savor the coating.  Enjoy!
