Food on Friday: Nuts

ON

We have an excuse to go quite "nutty" today!  Food on Friday is collecting dishes with nuts in them.  Apologies to anyone with nut allergies.

Almonds go well with – apricots, berries, cherries, chicken, chocolate, cream, dried fruit, honey, peaches, quinces, rice, trout and vanilla.

Cashews go well with – almonds, beans, cauliflower, chicken, coconut milk, cracked wheat, fish, pork and rice.

Hazelnuts go well with – almonds, chocolate, cinnamon, duck, oranges, pork and salad leaves.

Peanuts go well with – beef, chicken, chillies, coriander (cilantro), cucumber, pork, snake beans and tamarind.

Pecans go well with – bitter greens, blue cheese, cream, croutons, duck, garlic, goat's cheese, lemon juice, maple syru, molasses and quinces.

Pine nuts go well with – basil, dried currants, garlic, parmesan cheese, pasta, quail, rice, rosemary, salad leaves, silver beet and veal.

Pistachios go well with – almonds, chocolate, dried fruit, ham, honey, rice, sausages, semolina, terrines, watermelons and yoghurt.

Walnuts (not my faves) go well with – apples, bitter greens, blue cheese, celery, chocolate, cream, croutons, dates, duck, figs, garlic, goat's cheese, mussels, pears, potatoes, quinces, salad leaves and verjuice.

To add your contribution to the collection, just put your name and the name of the dish into the first Mr Linky box and then paste the url for your post into the second one.

I'll be pinning the dishes to this Pinboard.  If you pop over to it you will be able to see the collection at a glance and choose which ones you want to visit.

Happy Linking.

  1. I was going to give my almond pound cake, but one ingredient is not available world-wide as I found out from some readers--the almond pastry filling, but these are my FAVORITE cookies and a complete clone of Mrs Fields'!

  14. Carole,
    I'm sharing a soup recipe here because the peanut garnish really makes the dish (all the gals at work agreed). I've also got some sugarless muffins (just the natural sweetness of bananas and dates) and one of my favorite cookies--Hello Dolly bars. Thanks!

  29. I cook with nuts as often as possible. Especially pecans. Love this theme, Carole. Thank you!

  30. I shared three salads I've made over the past year. While I love nuts, I tend not to cook with them or eat them very often -- think I fell into the whole "nuts are fatty and fat is bad" trap. Trying to add them back in as they are quite healthy.
