To toast the walnuts: There are two ways to toast walnuts: in the oven and on the stovetop. Both methods work very well., You can toast them in the oven at 190°C for 5 minutes or on the stovetop in a dry skillet over medium-high heat. Add the walnuts to the hot, dry pan, only toasting as many walnuts as fit in the pan in a single layer. Cook, stirring frequently until the walnuts start to lightly brown and they smell toasted, about 5 minutes. Transfer the walnuts to a plate where they can cool before chopping.
