You can never have too many go-to holiday appetizers. This is one of our favorite “bites” to serve. Toasted Rosemary Walnuts are festive, satisfying and ready in 15 minutes. Serve them day of warm or store them in an air tight container in a cool spot for up to a week.
Walnuts are one of my favorite nuts. Why? Well aside from their rich and earthy taste, they’re also a nutrient powerhouse. One 1 oz serving (about 1/4 cup) provides polyunsaturated fats (including heart-smart omega 3s in the form of alpha linoleic acid), 4 grams of filling protein, 2 grams of fiber and are rich in antioxidants and the minerals phosphorous and magnesium.
Here’s how to make this holiday snack:
Toasted Rosemary Walnuts
Time: 15 minutes
- 2 cups shelled walnuts
- 1.5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ tablespoon garlic & sea salt blend (or use ¼ tsp each)
- 1 tablespoon chopped dried rosemary
Directions: preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with tin foil. In a bowl, toss walnuts with olive oil. Add garlic salt and rosemary and toss again. Pour nuts onto baking sheet and toast for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and serve. Or cool then store in an air tight container for up to a week.
