Learn how to toast nuts in this step-by-step how-to Kitchen Basics video.
-Nuts are a great protein addition to salads, pastas, and many other dishes. Toasting them brings out their flavor. Today, I'm going to show you 2 simple ways to do that. The first way to toast nuts is in the oven. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place nuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until golden and fragrant. Thin-sliced almonds will take between 7 and 10 minutes. You can also toast the nuts in a sauté pan on the stovetop. Place the pan over medium heat and stir until golden and fragrant. Pine nuts will take about 5 minutes. Remove to a plate or bowl; otherwise, they will continue toasting in the pan. Toasting nuts is that simple.
