We’ve been enjoying eating raw almonds and pecans lately, but sometimes I get the craving for roasted and salted nuts, so I’ll roast a small batch in our toaster oven. Basically, I put the nuts in a bowl, sprinkle with a little olive oil (not too much) and a few generous pinches of salt, then mix it so the nuts are coated before putting them on a baking sheet. Roast at 350° F for 7 minutes, then cool for at least 10 minutes. After that, they’re ready to enjoy! 😀

One recipe I followed had the nuts roasting for 12 minutes, but that was way too long for our oven. So, just play with the timing until you get them dialed in to exactly how you like them. And always make sure to let them cool, because the oils in the nuts get very hot, and if they are not cooled down enough, they’ll be too soft for that satisfying crunch.
