Mixed nuts come in all shapes and sizes, making them an extremely versatile ingredient. Packed full of protein, this blend of cashews, hazelnuts, almonds and peanuts are a great snack or, like in these three recipes, can add a little extra oomph to otherwise ordinary dishes.

This month, Jonathan Milder, Vince Camillo and Andrea Albin transform this nutty snack into pasta, toasts and toffee.
