      Yield: 1 Servings
 
  The mild flavor of almonds is the perfect complement to vibrant Asian
  flavors. Try tossing finely diced toasted almonds into a ginger-shrimp
  saute' or adding toasted whole natural almonds to Chinese. More tasty
  ideas.
  
  Whether you're serving salad or soup, pasta or poultry, almonds are a
  natural and healthful addition to any menu. With their excellent
  nutritional profile, almonds can be a part of an overall balanced
  diet. Here are some heart-healthy tips for incorporating wholesome,
  crunchy almonds into your diet:
  
  Make "nut crumbs" by adding whole toasted almonds to the bowl of a
  food processor and pulsing on and off until the almonds are coarsely
  ground. Use them as a wholesome gratin topping for casseroles, or
  sprinkle on pasta and grain dishes.
  
  Bursting with flavor, savory seasoned almonds are the perfect topping
  for your favorite side or main dish. In a nonstick skillet over
  medium-low heat, toss whole natural or slivered almonds in a small
  amount of vegetable oil until golden. Add your choice of dried herbs,
  then sprinkle over salads, vegetables and pasta.
  
  Mix toasted slivered or sliced almonds into grain-based dishes, such
  as Middle Eastern classic tabbouleh or other bulgur wheat salads to
  add flavor, nutrition and crunch. Or pair them with quinoa, hailed as
  the "super grain of the future" for its healthful nutrition profile.
  
  The mild flavor of almonds is the perfect complement to vibrant Asian
  flavors. Try tossing finely diced toasted almonds into a ginger-shrimp
  saute or adding toasted whole natural almonds to Chinese vegetable
  stir-fry dishes.
  
  Almond butter is a nutritious and hearty topping for bagels or
  muffins. And, it's easy to make at home by chopping whole natural
  almonds in a food processor with a little vegetable oil, salt and
  sugar until almost smooth.
  
  Visual appeal is important in low-fat cooking. Make a prudent parfait
  look sinful by layering frozen yogurt, pureed frozen berries and
  toasted sliced almonds in an elegant stemmed glass. Or, make
  individual trifles by adding layers of cubed angel food cake. Garnish
  with sprigs of mint, sliced almonds or whole berries, and serve with
  almond biscotti.
  
  The buttery flavor and crunchy texture of almonds make them a perfect
  topper for freshly baked low-fat scones and breads. Before baking
  scones, brush them with milk or egg white and top with slivered or
  chopped almonds. And for extra special quick breads sprinkle chopped
  almonds on them before baking, or knead toasted chopped or slivered
  almonds into yeast bread dough.
  
  To give hot cereal just a little more panache, mix in dried
  cranberries or cherries and a generous amount of chopped toasted
  almonds just before serving. Serve with skim milk and a drizzle of
  maple syrup.
  
  Satisfy your palate while watching your waistline by steaming your
  favorite fresh fish and vegetables and sprinkling them with toasted,
  sliced almonds. Serve with wedges of lemon or lime. You get all the
  flavor and all the benefits of a healthy, low-fat meal.
  
  Plain roasted chicken is enhanced by stuffing it with diced apples,
  onions, garlic, herbs and coarsely chopped, toasted whole almonds.
