  • 1/2 Cup Toasted Sliced Almonds
  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds

Directions

Place sliced almonds on a sheet pan and toast in a 350 degree oven for 5-10 minutes. Watch them carefully and remove from the oven as soon as they are slightly brown. Put aside to cool.

Sesame Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Sesame Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
