Secrets from My Macrobiotic Kitchen with Julie S. Ong

Eat better. Live better. Love better.

Enjoy This Warm Winter Treat

Are you ready to snuggle up by the fire with a warm winter treat? Then you will want to try this holiday favorite.

Roasted Chestnuts are a fun and easy snack that satisfies your sweet tooth. They are a low-fat healthy alternative to candies and sweets usually served this time of year.

Roasted Chestnuts

This recipe serves 1. If you have a group of 12 people, you’ll need 24. If it’s just you and your sweetheart, you’ll only need 4. The amount is up to you.

2 chestnuts

  1. Cut an X on the bottom of each chestnut.
  2. Place chestnuts in a shallow baking pan with the X pointing upward.
  3. Roast chestnuts in 425 degree F oven for 20 minutes.
  4. Peel and enjoy.

If you prefer the traditional approach, you can also roast chestnuts over an open fire. You will need a chestnut roasting pan and something to support the pan above the fire.

Even if Jack Frost isn’t nipping at your nose, this is still a great holiday treat.
