When you are invited to a party and you need to come up with something to bring on short notice, I always suggest checking your pantry to see what you have on hand. My husband has started a rather robust herb garden on our balcony. Since the rosemary is thriving, I took to google to try to find a quick and easy recipe that would highlight the fragrant herb. I found many rosemary roasted almond recipes, but wanted to increase the flavor intensity, so I added black pepper.
If you are still looking for a quick and easy snack for this Sunday’s Super Bowl, I highly suggest you try roasting your own nuts. It is simple, tasty, and healthy (in moderation).
