Roasted Nuts MixVariations

  • Roasted Herbed Nuts: Toss the nuts with thyme leaves along with the salt and pepperor  1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary.
  • Sweet-Hot Nuts: Toss the nuts with ½ teaspoon cayenne and ¼ cup packed brown sugar  (more or less) along with the pepper and salt .
  • Honey-Roasted Nuts: Drizzle ¼ cup honey over the nuts along with the salt and pepper and toss


– You can use the same method with butter or without any fat. It’s called dry roasting.
Use your nose: At about the same time that the nuts begin to turn light brown, your kitchen will start smelling nutty. That intoxicating smell means they’re done, so get them out of the oven before they scorch.
You can use any shelled nuts that you have on hand, but I especially like any combination using pecans, walnuts, almonds, pistachios, and cashews.
