1/4-cup serving

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup raw hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup raw shelled pistachios
  • 1/3 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup coriander seeds
  • 2 Tbs. cumin seeds

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spread hazelnuts and pistachios on baking sheet, keeping separate. Roast 5 minutes. Transfer pistachios to bowl, and continue roasting hazelnuts 2 minutes more, or until nuts are golden. Transfer hazelnuts to clean towel. Cool 5 minutes, then rub skins off with towel.

2. Toast sesame seeds in skillet over medium-low heat 1 to 2 minutes, or until light brown, shaking pan constantly. Set aside 1 Tbs. sesame seeds. Repeat with coriander seeds, then cumin seeds, toasting each until just fragrant. Toss nuts and seeds together, and cool.
