Much to the dismay of loyal fans everywhere, the 2015 football season will soon draw to a conclusion. However, there is still time for at least one more tailgating party. For a game changing flavor, how about making something different? If you are up for the challenge, try my new Wasabi Snack Mix, made with snacking favorites like pretzels, popcorn, and rice cereal. The twist? Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds.
Making it is a cinch. You start making the base of pop corn, pretzels, and rice cereal.
Then you put a small pot on low heat and melt some butter, add soy sauce, honey, and curry powder.
Then you toss the seasoning with the base and bake low and slow – 200 degrees for about 45 minutes.
Once it has cooled completely, you toss in a can of Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds. The hint of sweetness and soy in the base mix are complemented by the WOW of wasabi from the Blue Diamond almonds.
Wasabi Snack Mix
- 1 can Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds
- 3 cups rice squares cereal
- 3 cups popped pop corn
- 1 cup pretzels
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon curry
- 1 Tablespoon soy-sauce
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Combine cereal, pop corn, and pretzels in a large bowl. Set aside.
Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Add honey, curry, and soy sauce and stir until blended. Remove butter mixture from heat and gently toss over cereal mixture.
Spread mixture onto a large baking sheet or jelly roll pan and bake for 45 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Toss in can of Blue Diamond BOLD Wasabi & Soy Sauce Almonds, stir, and enjoy.
Did you know that almond are among the lowest calorie nuts? They are also the highest tree nut in six essential nutrients: protein, fiber, calcium, vitamin E, riboflavin, and niacin. Almonds are high in monounsaturated fat. (Monounsaturated fats can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in your blood which can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.) These are some good reasons for eating almonds.
