Hi there. Recently I've decided to try and make my own almond milk. The process I've found involves soaking almonds, then blending them with water, and straining out the solids.
With that in mind, if I dry out the leftover solid almond meal, then can I use it as almond flour? Will it have the...

Non only basil pesto – like for the classic genoese pesto – but most leafy vegetables and aromatic herbs are as well perfect to prepare a delicious one. After all the word ‘pesto’ is the past tense of the Italian verb “pestare” which means “to crush.”, since pesto is typically made by crushing...

Sunny Almond Cake
My cake contains both lemon and orange and gets a twist from crème fraîche or smetana (sour cream).
Preparation time: 1,5 hours
If you order Chicken Pasanda in a UK Indian restaurant, you would expect a mild creamy curry, thickened with almonds. In fact you can make the curry as spicy as you like and it will take quite a lot of chilli because the almonds tend to temper the heat. Here I used black peppercorns as well as...
I made this so much more difficult than it needed to be, but I’m happy with how it came together. First of all, the lumpiness is not because of the almonds: it's because I decided to use rutabaga, which didn't go through a ricer, and didn't mash up as well as I would have liked. Had I used...
Cantucci are crunchy almond cookies from Tuscany.
As in almost all traditional recipes there are always variations just like in this one to which we added raisins and used durum wheat semolina flour.
Biscotti literally means ‘cooked twice’ (Bis: twice – Cotti: cooked) and is also the generic...
The meatballs can be ground pork or lamb or veal or beef, or a mixture of any or all. A package of the prepared meatloaf mix sold in the grocery would be great for this. We also served this with tzatziki sauce.
1 Tbsp cumin seeds, toasted and finely ground in spice grinder
This is a pretty simple recipe that's very adaptable to what you might want to add. I used maple syrup, but honey can also be used as a sweetener. I used almond butter, but any nut butter works.
One thing I did here that I don't see in many recipes like this was that I toasted the oats and...

I made this back when I was eating essentially Paleo (no grains) at least as to what I cooked at home. Back in the early 2010's. I was still able to eat pine nuts then. I made these for a bake sale at work.

My basic Hummus recipe using Almond Butter instead of Tahini.
