All About the Almond

Did you know that almonds are the most widely-grown nut in the world? Given that they are so tasty and protein-packed, it’s no surprise. But perhaps the beauty of the almond is its versatility. It crops up in recipes for meals of all kinds. Whether you’re looking to add crunch to savory dishes such as this delicious and hearty Curried-Rice with Pineapple, or just want to add a little kick to your snacks, like with these quick and tasty Energy Bars with Rice and Quinoa, you’ll always find uses for almonds.

Raw vs. Roasted Almonds

Although there are many varieties of almond out there, the dilemma most of us face is a quite simple one: raw vs roasted. Here’s an easy rule to keep in mind:

  • Raw: if you’re baking or cooking then it’s probably best to use raw almonds so that your dish absorbs all the flavors of the nut in the process.
  • Roasted: if you just want to add some almond twist to the dish, like with this creamy and delicious Chocolate Coconut and Almond Rice Pudding, then your best bet is a roasted almond.
