Crushed toasted peanuts

Crushed, toasted peanuts are a wonderfully crunchy, salty accompaniment to a wide range of dishes both savoury and sweet. Some of my favourite dishes that can be taken up a notch with the addition of crushed, toasted peanuts are:

Ingredients (always good to have some of this prepped in advance):

  • 1 cup peanuts
  • A few drops of sesame oil (you can use an unflavoured oil such as sunflower if you prefer)
  • Half a teaspoon of salt


  1. Pop the peanuts, oil and salt in a frying pan over a high heat, and shake the pan every so often so the nuts toast evenly – you should have nicely toasted nuts after 5 minutes or less
  2. Pop the nuts in a food processor and grind until you have crunchy little salty fragments of the size you’re after
  3. Store your crushed, toasted peanuts in an airtight container in the fridge
  4. Sprinkle liberally on top of any dish you think could benefit from a bit of salty crunch 😉
