Health Benefits of Pistachios

Although they may be small, pistachios, like most nuts, are nutrient powerhouses, packing a whole lot of goodness into their small bodies. High in protein, fiber, and antioxidants, pistachios are one of the healthiest nuts that there are, which is why they have been a staple in the diets of millions of people for centuries. 


The protein, fiber, and healthy-fat content of pistachios are also great at helping you to feel satiated for longer, which can aid weight loss. In-shell pistachios are particularly good for those looking to lose weight because they also encourage mindful eating and slow you down. 

Ingredients

You only need a handful of ingredients for this recipe: pistachios, a few spices and honey! Here’s exactly what you’ll need:


Pistachios. Pistachios are the star of this dish! Their gorgeous purple and green colours add so much colour to this recipe. Not only will this recipe taste and smell delicious, but it will look fantastic as well. Choose unsalted pistachios with the shells removed. Salted pistachos also work if you omit the additional salt from the recipe. Try and find shelled pistachios so you save time and  won’t have to shell them yourself.


Honey. Honey adds a sweetness that will balance out the saltiness and other spices of this recipe. Honey and chili powder surprisingly go so well together! The sugars from the honey will crystalize in the oven and give the nuts the most delicious caramelized crunch!


Chili and Cayenne Powder. This combination of spices will add the perfect mild spice to the nuts. If you are wanting a bit more spice, just add another ¼ tsp of cayenne powder to bring the heat!


Garlic Powder. The garlic powder rounds out the other flavours of this recipe perfectly.


Salt. Salt will enhance the overall flavour of the pistachios making them irresistible!

Step 4. Transfer the pistachios to the baking sheet, using the back of a spoon to spread them out.

Can You Air Fry the Pistachios, Instead? 

You sure can! To air fry, marinate the pistachios in the sauce and they lay the coated nuts in an even layer in your air fryer basket. Fry at 325°F for 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through. When they’re finished, let them cool before serving. So easy!

 

 

Storage Info

To store make sure the nuts are completely cool and dry. Transfer them to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to a week. You can also freeze them, in which they will keep for 2-3 months without going rancid.
