Roasted rosemary almonds — for a little crave
A sudden desire for sweets or chips? Try somehting else and satisfy this crave with some healthy, tasty almonds!
Almonds are known for their high nutrient and vitamin contents. They deliver important unsaturated fats and mineral salts like magnesium and calcium as well as a large amount of vitamin B and E.
By eating only 60g per day you can already provide diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and a high level of cholesterol. This recipe combines almonds with healthy garlic and rosemary, which has a memory improving effect.
10 g butter*
200 g almonds
2 big cloves of garlic (crushed)
1 handful of rosemary leaves
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tbsp. Brown sugar
2 tsp. Seasalt flakes
1 tbsp. native olive oil
Melt the butter in a cast-iron or stainless steel skillet, add the almonds and stir until they're heated through and starting to brown. Take off the heat and add the condiments, stirring through. The residual heat of the pan should cook the garlic just enough to take off the edge without burning it (which results in a bitter taste).
Instead of the brown sugar you can also take some honey, which gives a beautiful color and a delicious taste!
* I used to prefer the taste of olive oil for this purpose, but I do not like to heat vegetable oils in order to avoid transfats, so I have got used to using butter or ghee for this recipe.
