more recipes! i used to hate almonds but now they’re ok!
- Toast the almonds in a dry frying pan on medium heat. Be patient and pay attention: shake the pan every so often, listen and smell them. They’ll smell better and better, and turn toasty brown and start to sizzle a little bit. Don’t let them burn!
- Then, into the hot pan add your choice of:
- A few dashes of soy sauce to taste (I usually err on the side of too much) OR
- A mixture of lime juice, chili powder, salt and maybe some honey? I can’t have honey but I imagine it would be choice. OR
- Something else I haven’t tried yet? Cinnamon, cloves, sugar and salt with a tablespoon of water maybe. Spices, man! Your choice!
- Keep stirring the almonds up as the liquid evaporates, coating them. It’ll make the pan look horrendous, but don’t worry because it’s super easy to rinse clean. Keep going until the coating starts to look powdery, not sticky at all.
- Let them cooooool and try not to eat them all right away! They usually are better the next day after any residual moisture has dried out but really good right away. You could also try other nuts? I have tried sunflower seeds with great success.
