12 sprigs thyme, leaves stripped

1 cup peanuts with the skin on

1 cup whole almonds with the skin on

1 cup pecan halves

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon flaky sea salt

The leaves will sizzle and fry a little. Immediately stir in the peanuts, almonds, pecans and red pepper flakes. Mix to coat with the oil.
  2. Spread the nuts on a baking sheet and bake until browned, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, stir in the lemon zest and salt and serve immediately?or let cool and then rewarm in a low oven.
