Pinch of good quality salt

More information for Recipe Nut Loaf

Almonds are an oval-shaped nut that, in their sweet form are popular as a snack, as a flavoring, as part of cereals and as an ingredient in recipes, especially desserts and garnishes. They are readily available in more forms (in-the-shell, shelled whole, sliced, slivered, blanched and paste) than any other nut. Almonds are high in protein, fiber and minerals, particularly calcium, and a good source of B vitamins.

Cashews are a tan-colored, half-moon shaped nut, native to South America, not sold in the shell due to a toxic irritant in the oil of the shells. They are eaten roasted rather than raw and are higher in carbohydrate and lower in fat than other nuts. They are also rich in protein, minerals, B vitamins and fiber.

Parsley is a popular, leafy green herb, related to celery and often used as a garnish. It is mainly purchased in curly or flat-leaf (Italian) varieties. The Italian variety is considered the tastier of the two. Parsley is an excellent source of Vitamin K as well as a good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron and folic acid. Its medicinal properties include digestive, and urinary tract benefits and it may be useful in preventing and treating cancer.

Sage is a grayish-green, “velvety” aromatic herb available in fresh or dried (whole, rubbed, powdered) form. It has anti-inflammatory properties and may enhance memory and is native to Mediterranean region. Sage comes in many varieties including pineapple sage, which has a strong pineapple scent.
