Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with a hot steamed vegetable, such as broccoli.
How to Toast Nuts
Toasting nuts not only gives them a pleasing golden color but also intensifies their flavor and adds crunch. To toast nuts, spread them in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally.
Passover Celebrations
To prepare this recipe for Passover, select food products that are kosher for Passover as needed. Consult with your rabbi if you have any questions.
