Savory Roasted Almonds

posted in: Recipes | 0

This is a super quick and simple recipe that I included on a vegan charcuterie board recently (more on that soon), especially if you make it in an air fryer!

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups raw almonds

Instructions

In a large bowl, stir together all of the ingredients, except the almonds, until you have a thick paste. Stir in the almonds, making sure to coat them really well (and really evenly!).

Air fryer directions

  1. Transfer the almonds to your air fryer basket. I have a mini air fryer with no temperature control. I cooked them in two batches. I also set the timer for 8 minutes and shook it every 2 minutes to prevent sticking and so that they cooked evenly.
  2. Starting at minute 6, you’ll want to check in every minute, tasting an almond for doneness. Your almonds are ready when they have hardened a bit but are still a little chewy in the center. They will get crunchier once they’re cooled.
  3. Let them cool to room temperature – about 10-15 minutes – then transfer to your storage container of choice.

Oven directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300° F.
  2. Spread the almonds into a single layer onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes, so that they cook evenly.
