Homemade Spiced Nuts and Coconut Strips
Here's a recipe for homemade nut mix that makes a perfect portable snack for your desk drawer, on-the-go car rides, or at the movies instead of popcorn! Combine whatever nuts and seeds you have in your cupboards to some coconut strips, which add a delicious and exotic flavour to the mix. Liquid smoke is another great ingredient to keep around, whether it's for seasoning tofu or adding to homemade broth. Try slipping in a few drops the next time you make a marinade, soup or sauce - you'll be instantly hooked!
Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Mix the olive oil, liquid smoke and seasonings together in a bowl. Add nuts and seeds, then stir to coat.
Spread nut mixture evenly on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Toast in oven 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
Let cool completely and enjoy.
