A question about a recipe: Tuscan Onion Confit

This looks great but I want to make it for some who can't eat pine or other nuts. Any substitute idea? Would it work as well without them? Thanks.

It would be just fine without the nuts!

I forgot to buy pine nuts and had to add them at the last minute. It tasted great without the nuts too. Maybe just add extra raisins or other dried fruits. I used dried cranberries, which have a bit more of a bite. It was hands-down the favorite dish at Thanksgiving and I gave the recipe to several people.

I'm allergic to nuts, and I'd make this in a heartbeat without them.

I think sunflower seeds are a good replacement for pine nuts.
