6 unexpected ways to use nuts

As good as they are on their own, or set in a slab of caramel, nuts can add a whole new dimension to a roast pork fillet (peanuts), a glorious stuffed chicken (almonds) or cheesy onion bake (macadamias). And don’t get us started on dessert: cashews and tigers and pistachios – oh my! Bianca Strydom share all these nutty recipes for you to try.

3. Peanut-crusted pork fillet

4. Vanilla cake with pistachio icing

Who says you can’t have cake for breakfast? This vanilla breakfast cake is made all the more fancy thanks to a divine pistachio icing. You can also soak any leftover cake in syrup and serve with fresh berries and crème fraîche, or more Ideal milk.

5. Slow-roasted onions

If you’re a fan of caramelised onions, then you’ll love these slow-roasted onions topped with toasted macadamias and Parmesan. You can also make this vegan by omitting the butter and using Woolworths’ vegan hard cheese instead.
