Roasted Mixed Nuts
- 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 cups toasted pecans
- 2 cups toasted almonds
- 2 cups toasted walnuts
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk syrup, oil, herbs, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.
Add nuts; stir to coat. Spread mixture into an even layer on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet.
Bake, stirring occasionally and rotating sheets halfway through, until nuts are dry and golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Spread nuts in a single layer on parchment paper to cool.
