Before you make your dinner menu for the week, make sure to check out a few of these recipe ideas.
1. Sauteed green beans with almonds
The next time you're responsible for bringing a side dish to a family get-together, check out this dish idea. The brightness of the fresh beans with the nuttiness of the almonds makes the perfect pairing.
2. Cinnamon roasted almonds (h/t Joyful Healthy Eats)
Almonds are fine raw, but they taste about 100 times better after they've been baked. When you add a bit of cinnamon, the result is heaven on a plate. You can eat this alone or add them as a topping on oatmeal.
3. Blueberry-orange pancakes (h/t Its Yummi)
Now this recipe calls for almond extract to go inside the pancake, but I think adding a but to the glaze and/or some roasted almonds to the top would be a tasty way to add more almond flavor.
4. Almond-crusted tilapia (h/t My Recipes)
If you enjoy a breaded fish, you know that it can be quite unhealthy. But, you can help keep that dish on your list of healthy foods, by swapping out the breading for an almond topping. Tasty, and healthy.
5. Greek yogurt waffles with almonds (h/t Reluctant Entertainer)
Almonds are a great breakfast add-on because they give you a dose of protein and help amp up the flavor of your go-to breakfast food. Pairing the almonds with Greek yogurt and waffles is a smart way to enjoy your favorite breakfast meal with a little less sugar.
6. Asian noodle bowl with spicy almond sauce (h/t Best Health Mag)
Amp up your lunch by adding almonds to this spicy noodle dish. Opting for ingredients like whole wheat spaghetti, broccoli, peas, bell pepper, and scallion, is an easy way to amp your vegetable intake. Serve with a salad.
7.Almond butter hummus (h/t Refinery 29)
Hummus is like manna from heaven, and it's a healthier dipping option than salad dressing or spinach dip, but you can add some more protein and highlight a new flavor with this fun twist.
