Curried Tigernuts

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.

Makes one small serving bowl.
