These roasted chestnuts are perfect for this time of the year. A good portion of very warm roasted chestnuts, fresh from the oven, are the perfect ingredient for this winter's coziness.

Porções: 2 portions


  • 2 cups chestnuts
  • 2 tbsp sea salt


  • Start by rinsing the chestnuts very well with water.
  • Cut the surface of all the chestnuts and put them on a baking tray.
  • Season the chestnuts with salt and take them to a preheated oven at 180º for approximately 25 minutes.
  • When the chestnuts are ready, turn off the oven and open the door. Let the chestnuts rest for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and peel your chestnuts. Resting is very important to make the peel come out more easily.
  • Eat immediately, while still warm.


If you'd like a little twist on your chestnuts, you can season them with aromatic herbs such as oregano, thyme, rosemary, etc. Just sprinkle them on top before putting them in the oven. The aromas will release and the chestnuts will taste great.
To peel the chestnuts, there's another trick from my dear Teresa from Healthy Bites, just wrap the chestnuts in a cloth, whilw they're still warm. Leave a few minutes and peel. Voi la, super easy to peel.
For either situation, the chestnuts should be peeled while still warm, so that the shell comes off easily.
