The smell of roasting nuts is irresistible and turns any dish into a delicacy.
Whenever I stroll near a nut roasting shop, I find the smell so irresistible that it’s almost impossible to go by without stopping in to buy a bagful as a snack.
But roasted nuts, also called toasted nuts, have many uses beyond snacks, and can enhance every part of the menu. You can turn them into delicious nut butters and dips. For ice cream, cakes and other desserts, they make enticing sprinkles.
Think of walnut halves on chocolateglazed cakes or chopped toasted almonds or pistachios on rice pudding. Savory dishes from grain pilafs and cooked vegetables to pasta dishes and green salads are much more appealing when topped with these flavorful, crunchy treats. Toasted sesame, sunflower and shelled pumpkin seeds can be used the same way. Fortunately, nuts are good for you. Healthconscious cooks know that nuts are a valuable source of protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. I like toasted nuts even when I wake up. A sprinkling on my oatmeal is a healthy way to make breakfast feel like a special treat….
