One of my favorite foods is nuts. They’re healthy, tasty and add a great crunch to pasta, salads and cereals. Here is a quick recipe to give your pasta dishes more crunch. Not all nuts go together and not all nuts are tasty toasted, but feel free to experiment!
Toasted Nut Crunchers
2 Tbsp Sliced Peeled Almonds (Raw or Unsalted, Not Roasted)
2 Tbsp Sesame Seeds (Raw or Unsalted, Not Roasted)
2 Tbsp Sunflower Seeds (Raw or Unsalted, Not Roasted)
Mix the nuts together and place on parchment paper in the toaster. Toast at 300 Fahrenheit (150 Celsius) until the nuts start to brown. Remove the nuts, let them cool on the parchment and then transfer to a jar for storage. Use on pastas and salads liberally.
Roasted Nuts TIP: Choose unsalted nuts – salted ones will dry out quickly. Roast nuts of similar size together, otherwise they will turn out unevenly.
