These Pizza Roasted Nuts are packed with flavor but only require 6 ingredients to make! They’re a great Gluten Free, Vegan, and Paleo snack to have on hand.
Do you remember those Pizza-Flavored Pringles? They were my absolute favorite chip flavor before I went Vegan. Nowadays, I’m much more health-conscious and mindful about what I put in my body. But dang, these Pizza-flavored Roasted Nuts sure do taste just like those chips.
(In the best way possible)
Even better, the pizza-flavoring only requires 4 simple ingredients and this whole recipe comes together in about 20 minutes! I’ve been loving these Roasted Nuts as a quick snack, especially when I’m craving something salty instead of sweet. Sometimes fruit or a fudgy bliss ball just doesn’t cut it, ya know?
I roasted my nuts on a reusable Silicone Mat (aka one of my best and most-used purchases ever), but you could also use parchment paper if you’d like. Personally I do find that the mat helps to caramelize my food and make it more crispy, though.
Now that it’s back-to-school season, I’ve been trying to have more Lunchbox-friendly recipes here for you on From My Bowl. This recipe is actually a part of my latest YouTube video, in which I show you 3 easy Vegan lunchbox snacks! Check out the video below, or go directly to the recipes for some PB&J Energy Bites or Vegan Cosmic Brownies.
A Few Final Thoughts:
- Be sure to let the Roasted Nuts cool completely on the baking tray before putting them away. Otherwise they may not dry completely and leave the nuts a little soggy.
- If you do not have both almonds and cashews in your pantry, feel free to sub another nut or seed! Just make sure that you are still using the same nut-to-marinade ratio.
- Though I have not tested a nut-free version of this recipe, I imagine you could substitute equal parts sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds for an equally delicious effect.
Finally, if you make this recipe and post a photo on Instagram be sure to tag me @frommbowl + #frommybowl so I can see your delicious nutty and pizza-esque recreation! 🙂
Pizza Roasted Nuts - Gluten Free, Vegan, Paleo
These Pizza Roasted Nuts are packed with flavor but only require 6 ingredients to make! They're a great Gluten Free, Vegan, and Paleo snack to have on hand.
- 2/3 cup Raw Cashews
- 2/3 cup Raw Almonds
- 1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
- 1 tbsp Tomato Paste
- 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
- 2 tsp Tamari (or Soy Sauce / Liquid Aminos if not GF)
- 2 tbsp Filtered Water
- 1/3 cup Sundried Tomatoes, chopped into bite sized pieces
Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a medium bowl, combine the Nutritional Yeast, Tomato Paste, Italian Seasoning, Tamari, and Water. Mix well until an even paste forms.
Add the Cashews and Almonds to the bowl and mix until everything is evenly coated. Spread the nut mixture evenly across a lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350F for 5 minutes, then remove the nuts and mix. Continue to cook at 3 minute intervals, tossing in between each interval, until the nuts are toasted and the Pizza "marinade" has dried (I cooked mine for two 3-minute intervals).
Once the nuts have completely cooked, add the chopped Sundried Tomatoes to the baking tray and toss to combine. Let cool completely before packing away.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days.
If you do not own an Italian Seasoning mix, here is a quick DIY recipe.
I found oil-free Sundried Tomatoes from Trader Joes but if you cannot get your hands on some, be sure to drain + dry yours well before mixing with the nuts.
