Union Square Nuts Made Easy

I love nuts as snacks and while pregnant, I couldn’t stomach much heavy foods (like steak or dairy) and couldn’t bend over to reach the oven towards the end, so I adapted the famous Union Square Spiced Nuts recipe to be made in the microwave. That adapted recipe is over on my main blog, EvinOK. Or you can go with the original recipes from The Union Square Cafe Cookbook: 160 Favorite Recipes from New York’s Acclaimed Restaurant, which is available from Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. I found the nut recipe itself available in its original oven version. It is definitely better all around, but if you are short on time, don’t have an oven, or can’t reach it due to a big ole pregnancy belly, my version of the recipe will get you to nibbling on these nuts without breaking a sweat. There are a few versions floating around the internet, but they all stem from the Union Square Cafe recipe, which is the original and classic one. If you are nuts for nuts, give it a try.
