I'm Nuts!

So, earlier I posted this recipe for Sweet & Spicy Almonds.  Today, I decided to whip up the recipe, but instead leaving out the red pepper flakes, adding cinnamon and substituting almonds for sunflower seeds.  The result was as delicious as I thought it would be!  I also love how when this cools down after roasting and coating that it forms like a brittle!  Yum! 

Here's my changed-up recipe for Sweet Roasted Sunflower Seeds...

First, mix the following in a small bowl:

  • 1 tbsp of white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp of ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
Then, in a large frying pan or skillet, on medium, heat up:
2 tbsp of EVOO
Once heated, add:
  • 2 cups of raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
Toss to coat. Then, keep stirring constantly, as the sunflower seeds can burn instantly. When sugar and seeds are a deep golden brown colour, pour into a large bowl and toss with the spice mixture. Pour onto a cookie sheet and then...enjoy!
