  • 200 g California walnuts
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp parmesan finely grated
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives finely chopped
  • 1 lemon zest finely grated
  • ¼ tsp sea salt flakes scrunched fine


  • Toss the walnuts with the olive oil in a mixing bowl. Mix half of the parmesan with the chives, lemon zest and salt, then sprinkle over the nuts while tossing them in the bowl so that they get an even coverage.
  • Set the air-fryer to 160°C using the ‘Roast’ mode and transfer the coated nuts to the fryer basket. Roast for 6 minutes, giving the basket a shake halfway through.
  • Tip the walnuts onto kitchen paper and spread them out into a single layer, then sprinkle over the remaining 2 tbsp of parmesan. Leave to cool completely before serving or storing in an air-tight container.
