Roasting nuts crisps them and deepens flavors. This simpleRoasted nuts in a salad step will improve almost any recipe that calls for nuts, and may also boost antioxidant levels in some nuts. Yield: 1 pound roasted nuts.

Ingredients:

1 pound nuts or nut pieces, raw
Optional additions: 1 tbsp peanut or grapeseed oil, 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp honey

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with nuts a layer deep. For sweet-and-salty nuts, toss them first with oil, salt and honey. Roast for 5 to 15 minutes, paying close attention and shaking the pan around once or twice during cooking.

Remove the nuts when they have darkened noticeably and are fragrant but not burnt. They will continue to cook for a few minutes outside the oven. Allow them to cool before tasting — they’ll be chewy while warm, but crisp after they’ve cooled.
