Roasted walnuts

For the most basic recipe for roasted walnuts you only need: walnuts, salt and water.

How to prepare: Cut the walnuts in half. They are poured over with a small amount of salty solution - salt dissolved in water, just enough to moisten it. Place them in the oven until they're golden brown.

The second recipe for roasted walnuts is similar

You will need: walnuts, 2 egg whites and salt.

How to prepare: Place the walnuts in the baking tray, then pour the mixture of egg whites and salt over them. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Roasting walnuts is not only done in the oven. The microwave has the same effect. The walnuts are slightly moistened and salted.

Place them in the microwave for about a minute, then remove them, stir and allow them to cool for a few minutes.

Turn on the microwave again for about a minute, after which they need to be tasted to make sure they are ready. If not, turn on the microwave for about another 10 seconds.
