This same technique can be used to toast any kind of nut. You can also heat the nuts in a sauté pan on the stovetop. 

  • walnuts
  • a drizzle of olive oil, or any other kind of oil you prefer
  • salt to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 375, if you feel comfortable keeping a close eye on the walnuts. If not, you can toast them at 325. 
  2. Put the nuts on a baking sheet, and toss with oil and salt.
  3. Cook until the nuts are golden brown, or a deeper brown, if you prefer. Nuts are one of the the things that restaurant chefs are most likely to burn, because they cook very quickly. This is a task to do when you have the wherewithal to be very attentive, for a few minutes.
