Sweet and Spicy Nuts with Oven-Dried Edamame

In addition to a healthful mix of nuts, this blend contains another secret health weapon, edamame. Edamame is a complete protein, meaning it contains all essential amino acids. It's also a very good source of folate, a B vitamin that helps lower your risk of stroke and heart attack. Make sure to choose an organic variety of edamame.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup frozen shelled organic edamame, thawed and patted dry
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 tbsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted pecans
  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw unsalted cashews
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread edamame evenly across parchment. Bake until dried and crispy, 20 to 23 minutes. Set aside to cool.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine maple syrup and cayenne. To a large skillet, add pecans, almonds and cashews. Drizzle syrup mixture over nuts and stir to coat. Place on medium-high heat and cook, stirring often, until syrup bubbles, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add edamame and stir to coat.

3. Pour edamame-nut mixture over parchment on same baking sheet and spread in a single layer. Return baking sheet to 400°F oven and bake until nuts are browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle immediately with salt. Cool completely on baking sheet. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
