BONUS: Roasting your own almonds
Place the almonds in a small saucepan and cover them with filtered water.
Bring the water to a boil, reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes. Strain the water from the saucepan and allow them to cool.
Remove the skin and place the almonds on a non- stick baking tray. Place the tray under the grill.
Keep watch, when the almonds become golden brown, turn them over to the other side. Once both sides have roasted, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool before mixing them with the herbs.
