Cajun Spiced Nuts Recipe

This is my recreation of some gorgeous cajun spiced nuts we had while out once – yummy peanuts, cashews, almonds and pecans roasted in a delicious cajun seasoning.

These are a really lovely snack to make up in advance and have on hand for when you are craving something savoury, they store well for about 3 weeks in an airtight container.

You can use any mix of nuts you like if you don’t have all those listed on hand. And if you like cajun food, don’t forget to check out my cajun vegetable pasta recipe – it’s one of our favourites!

Enjoy, L x
