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

Now choose one or more flavors according to the spices you prefer.
1 teaspoon of mixed thyme, rosemary, oregano, plus dried sage and basil
1/2 teaspoon of mixed cinnamon, ginger powder, cardamom and nutmeg
A tip of a teaspoon of hot chili pepper
1/2 teaspoon of sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
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!
