Almonds Toasted With Garlic-Rosemary Olive Oil
Toasted almonds are one of my favorite snacks. I made this delicious version using garlic-rosemary infused olive oil and they came out really good. I’ve been trying to incorporate more small, healthy snacks into my diet and these almonds really fit the bill. After making them I realized that they would also make great party snacks! I mean, who doesn’t like flavored toasted almonds?!
4 cups raw almonds
2 whole garlic cloves, slightly crushed
1 tablespoon roughly chopped rosemary
1/2 cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup olive oil
Place the garlic, rosemary, cayenne pepper and oil in a sauce pan and heat on low/medium heat for five minutes. Strain oil into bowl removing all left over garlic and rosemary. Add raw almonds and salt to the bowl and toss with oil. With a slotted spoon remove almonds and place on a sheet pan in a single layer, straining most of the oil. Sprinkle with a tad bit more salt and place in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until the house starts to smell like yummy garlic almonds.
