1 tablespoon water
1/8 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

1. On a small dry frying pan, lightly toast the pine nuts until golden brown. Stir frequently so they do not burn. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely (you can place them in the freezer to speed the process).

3. Serve immediately or store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
