how to roast nuts in microwave oven

While roasting nuts in the oven or on the stovetop is more common, you can also roast nuts in a microwave oven. Here's how:


  • Raw nuts (any variety)


  1. Spread the raw nuts evenly in a single layer on a microwave-safe plate.
  2. Place the plate in the microwave and set the power to 50%.
  3. Microwave the nuts for 1-2 minutes, then remove the plate from the microwave and stir the nuts.
  4. Place the plate back in the microwave and microwave for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Check the nuts to see if they are golden brown and have a toasty aroma. If they aren't quite done, microwave them for an additional 30 seconds at a time until they reach the desired level of roasting.
  6. Remove the plate from the microwave and let the nuts cool for a few minutes before enjoying.

Note: Microwaving times can vary depending on the wattage of your microwave and the type of nuts you're roasting, so it's a good idea to keep an eye on the nuts and adjust the cooking time as needed.

Roasting nuts in the microwave can be a quick and convenient way to enjoy a roasted snack without having to heat up the oven or stove. However, the results may not be as consistent or even as roasting nuts in the oven.
