Many of us only mainly think of almonds as a good ingredient in the preparation of sweets, biscuits and cakes.
Next to this traditional use of almonds we offer you a tasty novelty! We discovered how delicious they can be as an aperitif or appetizer, accompanied by a good wine or a craft beer.

Here are some easy recipes to prepare at home with almonds and spices.

The basic ingredients

400 g shelled and / or peeled almonds
1 egg white
salt to taste
a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

(Check out our online shop to find the right organic almonds and extra virgin olive oil for you!)

Now choose one or more flavors according to the spices you prefer.

Mediterranean taste

1 teaspoon of mixed thyme, rosemary, oregano, plus dried sage and basil

Ginger taste

1/2 teaspoon of mixed cinnamon, ginger powder, cardamom and nutmeg

Lively taste

A tip of a teaspoon of hot chili pepper
1/2 teaspoon of sweet paprika

Turmeric flavor

1/2 teaspoon of turmeric

Indian taste

1/2 teaspoon of masala or curry


Mix the egg white with a fork, add the almonds to the egg white and mix so that the egg white is evenly distributed between the almonds. Add the chosen spices, add the salt, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and bake in the oven.

Toast the seasoned almonds at 140 ° -160 ° for 15-20 minutes depending on the oven. We suggest mixing the almonds halfway through cooking to prevent them from sticking together.

Let the almonds cool down and … have a good aperitif!
