A brilliant gift for the health-conscious foodie in your life, these almonds are full of flavour and the za’atar gives them a great Middle Eastern flavour. They are also really quick to prepare so they are perfect if you receive a last minute invite and need a gift to take. I like to present these in a little clear bags tied with ribbon but they look just as good in a jar or a box.
Za’atar Roasted Almonds
- 2 cups of whole almonds
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 3 tablespoons of za’atar
- Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
- In a bowl whisk the egg whites until they look foamy.
- Stir in the almonds, salt and za’atar and mix to ensure that almonds are well coated.
- Spread the coated almonds out over the baking tray and bake for 20-30 minutes until dry.
They smell amazing at this point, but remember they are a gift, so no nibbling them!
