Sometimes you just want a snack that is a bit different, very moorish, sweet as well as savoury, healthy and not too fattening. Well, these walnuts do the trick. They are absolutely divine and I challenge you to not eat them all in one sitting!! You can use them to garnish salads or just as a tasty snack. They are also wonderful with sweet dishes. I sprinkle them on plain yoghurt or ice-cream and if you really want to be decadent add caramel sauce.
Toss 2-3 handfuls of walnuts with 2 tablespoons each of liquid honey and extra virgin olive oil
Add a good dash of soy sauce and mix well
Spread on a lined baking tray and bake in a pre-heated oven at 170C for 5-7 minutes or until they start to go crisp
Remove from the oven and sprinkle with flaky sea salt
Have a look at the other recipes on my blog. They are all my favourites so tried and tested.
This is my version of the recipe and is how my Sicilian mother-in-law used to make it. It’s simple and yet very tasty. No breadcrumbs, mozzarella or other ingredients, just aubergines, basil, parmigiano and a tomato sauce. In Sicily its an antipasto not a main course so I always eat it with fresh crusty bread.
Don’t eat it directly from the oven as it’s too hot to appreciate the flavours. Wait until it is luke warm or even room temperature.
I always make more of both the aubergine slices and the sauce than I need for this dish so that I have some left over to use with pasta. There is nothing better than a plate of spaghetti with the tomato sauce and slices of fried aubergine on top and a sprinkle of parmigiano.
Try this staple recipe of mine. It is always a huge hit with guests.

I just have to share this little gem of a recipe with you. It is one of the healthiest and yummiest breakfast/snacks ever and great for a hangover!! It's high in healthy vegetable protein and fat. And absolutely delicious.
This mocha refrigerator cake is absolute divine and a must-try for your next dinner party.
This is one of my favourite chicken recipes. It's quick and easy and full of flavour. The faint aniseed flavour of tarragon intensifies the flavour of the chicken, making it both fresh tasting and very savoury.
