How to Toast Nuts
Toasting nuts adds crunch and intensifies their flavor. To toast nuts in the oven, spread nuts in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F for 8 to 10 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. To toast nuts on the stovetop, place nuts in ungreased skillet. Cook on medium heat until golden brown, stirring frequently. To toast nuts in the microwave, place up to 1 cup of nuts in a microwaveable shallow dish. Microwave on HIGH until fragrant and crisp, stirring every 30 sec.
Cooking with Beer
When cooking with beer, the pale ales are generally considered to be the most versatile beers. Nut-brown ales lend themselves particularly well to cheese dishes, while the wheat ales go well with fish.
Substitute fat-free reduced-sodium vegetable broth or water for the beer.
