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.

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

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

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.

Cranberries. Great idea! Thank you!

It would be just fine without the nuts!
