Herb Roasted Almonds

Herb Roasted Almonds - Meatballs&Milkshakes

These make a great snack with drinks, before dinner, or just about anytime. These will be on my table for New Year’s Eve, but they were also out throughout the holidays and were great to munch on between all the big meals. I first had these kind of specially roasted almonds in LA last year, where they were artisanally roasting nuts with various spices. The options are endless, just take a look in your spice cabinet or refrigerator for inspiration.

Herb Roasted Almonds

12 ounce package of almonds, unroasted and unseasoned if possible

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil plus extra

2 tablespoons Aleppo pepper

2 tablespoons Herbes de Provence or chopped rosemary

2 tablespoons salt

Pour the almonds onto a foil-lined sheet tray. Pour the olive oil and spices on top, and using your hands, mix everything so the nuts are well coated in olive oil and spices. Spread them out and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until the nuts start to toast and they are fragrant. Toss when they come out of the oven to make sure they continue to absorb flavor as they cool. Add a little more olive oil if they seem dry, or to give more fresh olive oil flavor.
