  • 2 to 3 teaspoons Simply Nature Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3/4 cup (90g) Southern Grove Shelled Pistachios (unsalted or salted)
  • 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • Pinch or two of cayenne pepper
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt (omit if using salted pistachios)


  • Heat a medium frying pan over medium heat. After a minute or two, add the olive oil and pistachios. For roasted pistachios, cook for 1 minute, tossing frequently. For raw pistachios, cook for 3 minutes, tossing frequently.
  • Add the red pepper flakes, cumin, paprika, cayenne, several cracks of black pepper, and salt (only add salt if using unsalted pistachios). Stir almost continuously for 1 minute, then take off the heat.
  • Transfer to a plate and spread out with a spoon, ensuring spices evenly coat the nuts.
  • Once cool, store spiced pistachios in an airtight container or jar in your pantry for 3 weeks (may last longer).
