Toasting Spices In The Microwave

Spices and nuts that have a naturally high oil content can be toasted using your microwave oven. Spread 1/4 cup whole spices or 1 cup nuts on a microwave-safe plate. Cook on high (uncovered), for 3-5 minutes or until they become fragrant. This works well for walnuts, sesame seeds, sliced almonds, cashews, cumin seed, fennel seed, etc.
