Spicy Roasted Peanuts with Green Onions
This healthy peanut snack is perfect for road trips or movie night at home.
- Cooking time: 12 to 15 minutes
- Serves: Makes about 2 cups
|2 cups (500 mL) roasted peanuts|
|½ cup (125 mL) sugar|
|1½ tbsp (22 mL) peanut oil|
|1½ tbsp (22 mL) kosher salt, or to taste|
|1 tbsp (15 mL) five-spice powder|
|1 tbsp (15 mL) chili powder, or to taste|
|½ cup (125 mL) chopped green onion|
Place the peanuts and sugar in a non-stick pan over moderate heat. Stir until the sugar starts to melt, about 5 to 7 minutes. Drizzle the oil on the peanuts then add the salt, five-spice powder and chili powder. Stir another 3 to 5 minutes. (The sugar on the peanuts will start to harden and become crunchy.) Remove the peanuts from the heat and immediately add the green onions. Toss several times and transfer to a cookie sheet to cool.
