Smoky Roasted Nuts

Busy week!

I put these nuts together on Sunday to bring to a party.  The recipe called for baking at 350* for 30 minutes.  At 20 minutes, they were burned.  :/   So, I tried again, taking them out after 15.  Still burned.  I can totally imagine how good they'd be when they don't have quite so much of a "smoky" taste.  Maybe start watching after 10 minutes?
Smoky Roasted Nuts

2 TB soy sauce
2 TB toasted sesame oil
2 tsp liquid smoke
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt
3 c whole raw nuts

Preheat oven to 350*.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Combine all ingredients except nuts, then toss nuts in the liquid.  Spread out on a baking sheet and bake until browned and crispy (10 minutes? 15 minutes?).  Watch them like you'd watch a zombie lurking in the corner of your living room.


This week I also picked up some "saifun" noodles made out of bean starch (the package looks like this).  The texture is exactly like gummy bears.  I stirfried them with onion, garlic, tofu, peas, carrots, kale, cilantro, lime, chili-garlic paste, and tamari.
