Nuts & Seeds





Nuts and seeds are a smart, nutrient-dense option when you need fuel with great flavor. You can sprinkle them over yogurt or oatmeal in the morning to add crunch and they both make delicious alternatives to peanut butter (actually a legume) when blended up. Or upgrade a bowl of soup or a salad for dinner with a small handful. Food & Wine gives you the best recipes that feature seeds and nuts in brittles, salads, desserts and more.

Auntie Roberta’s Bourma (Armenian Phyllo Pastry with Walnuts)

A wooden skewer, dowel, or chopstick is the only special tool needed to make this crispy scrunched phyllo pastry filled with chopped nuts and drizzled with sugary syrup. A splash of fresh lemon juice adds bright, zesty flavor to the syrup that balances both the sweetness of the pastry and the rich, buttery walnuts. The recipe is from Roberta Kochakian of Los Angeles, who is descended from a family of Armenian Genocide survivors and has devoted much of her life to chronicling traditional Armenian recipes and cooking techniques.

Pistachio Salad

Pistachio salad is actually more of a pudding, studded with marshmallows and crushed pineapple.
