Ingredient: Dry Roasted Nuts

Recorded November 12, 2013. Dry roasting tree nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts, pistachio, cashews) or peanuts benefits both their flavor and aroma, and may reduce their allergic potential.
1 c nuts (whole or pieces)
1 t vegetable oil (optional)
1/2 t salt (optional)
Preheat toaster oven to 375 ºF (190 ºC). Spread the nuts in a single layer in a heavy metal 8x8 inch baking pan. Mix in the oil and salt, if desired, for snack nuts. Roast for 4 to 6 minutes, until nuts are lightly colored and fragrant being careful not to overcook. Spread on a plate to cool. Use immediately or store tightly covered. Add to salads, cakes, cookies, stir fries, etc. Variation: Grind the nuts when cool in a food processor for easy addition to other dishes such as pancakes, soups, stews, toppings, or as a low-carbohydrate snack by the spoonful.
