I adore eating almonds as a healthy snack between meals or just something to munch on while I'm cooking and enjoying a glass of my favourite red. Yesterday I was very excited to come across this moreish and easy recipe in Decorators Notebook.
Garlic, Rosemary and Chilli almonds
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 large sprigs of rosemary, leaves only
1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes (or adjust to taste)
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1) Gently heat the olive oil in a heavy-based frying pan then add the almonds. Sizzle gently for 3-4 minutes until heated through and beginning to brown a little.
2) Add all the other ingredients, apart from the sea salt. Stir well to coat the almonds and heat for 1 minute more (take care not to burn the garlic, which can become bitter).
3) Line a bowl with kitchen paper and tip in the nuts. Shake around a little to soak up any excess oil then sprinkle with sea salt.
