Know about the Jamie Oliver’s Spiced Nuts Ingredients
Jamie uses fresh ingredients in all of his recipes. So, if you want to try recreating his Spiced Nut recipe, make sure you buy the freshest spices possible. Also, make sure you purchase organic almonds.
Almonds: Contains lots of monounsaturated fats, which may reduce cholesterol levels and improve blood flow. They contain vitamin E, magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, folate, fiber, protein, and healthy oils. We are using 1 cup of whole raw almonds.
Hazelnuts: Hazelnut has a rich flavor and high-fat content, which makes them perfect for adding crunch to recipes like this one. It’s also packed with protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and healthy fats. We are using 1 cup of whole roasted hazelnuts.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon adds flavor to almost anything, so it’s essential to add it to the nuts. Start with 1 teaspoon per cup of nuts. We are using ¼ cup ground cinnamon.
Salt: Salt to add flavor and texture. We are using ½ tsp salt.
Olive oil: Jamie Oliver uses extra virgin olive oil in his Spiced Nuts recipe because it has a higher smoke point than vegetable oils. When fats reach a specific temperature, they decompose into potentially harmful byproducts, a process known as “smoke point.” The smoke point of extra virgin olive oil is relatively high, so it doesn’t become rancid quickly, which means that it will stay fresh longer than other cooking oils. We are using 1 tbsp olive oil.
