Tiger nuts are a new find for me, a gift from a friend in fact. They are not actually a nut but in fact a smal; root vegetable containing more iron than red meat as well as prebiotic fibre. According to their supplier, Organic Gemini, they comprised 80% of or our paleo ancestors’ diet. Today I curried in them in a simple mix of spices.
What you need:
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 cup tigernuts
1/2 cup almonds or use cashews/walnuts/pecans
Preheat the oven to 175C.
Mix all the ingredients bar the nuts in a bowl, then pour in the nuts and coat thoroughly.
Pour onto a non-stick baking tray and bake for 10 minutes.
Serve warm else store in a jar.
