Ingredients

  • 200 g brown skin almonds (in other words, Australian hardshells, not Californian papershells)
  • 1 tbsp best quality olive oil (local of course!)
  • fine salt

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Lightly coat almonds with olive oil and spread on a roasting tray. Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until almonds are nicely roasted.

Salt while hot and leave on tray until cool. Enjoy!!
