Appetizers don’t get much easier than these herb-roasted Marcona almonds, which make a great accompaniment to sparkling wine and cocktails. Imported from Spain, Marcona almonds are sweeter and moister than other almond varieties.


  • 1 lb. (500 g) roasted salted Marcona almonds
  • 1 Tbs. minced fresh thyme
  • 1 Tbs. minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground pink peppercorns (optional)


Preheat an oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl, combine the almonds, thyme, rosemary and olive oil and toss to coat. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and roast, stirring halfway through, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

Transfer the almonds to a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 12.
