Toasted Nuts Mix

Toasted Nuts Mix | veganblondes.com

This toasted nuts mix makes its way into my dishes on more occasions than one would imagine. I don’t have to discuss the importance of nuts in a vegan diet, but know that nuts are high in essential amino acids and healthy fats. Eating nuts and seeds are a great way to add vitamins, minerals, fiber, and essential fatty acids (like omega 3 and omega 6), to your diet. They are used for example to top our Indian Spiced Parsnip Soup, but I also sprinkle this mix on top of my morning oatmeal, on salads, and we eat them just like that too as an easy vegan snack. It’s easy and it’ll add some crunch and nutrients to your diet.

  • Raw cashews
  • Raw peanuts
  • Raw almond slices
  • Shelled raw pistachios
  • Raw pine nuts
  • Raw pepitas

Heat up a small skillet over medium heat. When the skillet is warm, add the bigger nuts, like cashews and pistachios. Toast them while stirring until they start to brown, at which point you can add the other nuts. Keep stirring until brown but not burnt. Remove from the heat to a large plate and let cool. Bon appétit!
