Curried Almonds in Your Slow Cooker

 

Curried almonds, walnuts, peanuts, & cashews I could snack on them all day long. Making the curried nuts is super easy it involves one kitchen utensil, a bowl  and a slow cooker. Don’t have a slow cooker? Do yourself a massive favour and get one, ASAP! You will thank us when you walk in the door after a punishing day at work and crappy commute home and smell those lovely aromas of  sticky spiced lamb shanks or Hawaiian-Style Short Ribs and all you have to do is plonk yourself on the couch with a bowl of it and eat! Plus they is usually enough to eat it the next day for lunch.

This particular recipe is for people who like spicy snacks rather than sweet with an indulgent feel, that will leave you satisfied. (And keep you away from the chips.) . They are especially good served with ice cold beer or warm mulled apple cider.

Healthy Benefits From Curry Powder

We don’t often make our own curry powder when we do they involve a good heaping of the healthy spices below!

Tumeric: Tumeric is similar to ginger root and originates from the orange root. Turmeric is a potent, yet safe anti-inflammatory. It can be used in the treatment of IBD, rheumatoid arthritis, cystic fibrosis, and can also be used in the prevention of cancer. Tumeric is also thought to lower cholesterol and provide protection to the cardiovascular system, and also aids in liver function.

Coriander: Coriander is great at controlling  blood sugar, as well as cholesterol. Another fantastic characteristic of coriander is that it can help you fight off salmonella and other bacterial issues because it contains antibacterial compounds

Cumin:  Cumin has been known to   protect against certain types of cancer. its has many other useful characteristics such as boosting your immune system, highly useful in the production of iron and is also known to be of great benefit to the digestive system

 

What Are Sprouted Almonds? 

If you’re after another healthy and yummy almond snack, give sprouted almonds a go! Sprouted almonds are packed with nutrients and easy to digest. Almonds are spouted by soaking them for 24 hours which allows them to germinate. The sprouted almonds are then removed from the solution and slowly dried at a very low temperature with low humidity. This slow drying process destroys the enzyme inhibitors, releasing the full nutritional content of the nut and allowing the body’s natural enzymes to more easily digest the nuts. The sprouted almonds are also left with  A smooth, buttery flavour.

    Why are some of the ingredients amounts in grams and the rest of the ingredients are in House Hold measurements in all of your recipes? Why not just House Hold for all the ingredients in the recipes?

      Hi Carla,

      Sorry about that, is just the size of the packet I usually use 🙂 Otherwise it is roughly a cup. Let me know how you go 🙂 Hope you’re enjoying your holidays!
