The holiday season is a perfect time to catch up with family and friends. It’s also a time of year where you might find yourself entertaining more than usual, or being invited to gatherings and asked to bring a plate. So we’ve rounded up some of our favourite almond recipes to help you get through the Summer.
For those times when you’re asked to bring a plate, this Smoked Fish and Almond Dip is ideal. Everybody who has eaten it requests the recipe, too, meaning it’s a sure-fire hit at your next party.
For an easy, gluten and dairy-free dessert when you have friends over, this Vegan Chocolate and Almond Ice Cream is a winner. Serve it with crushed Maltesers, extra chopped almonds and chocolate sauce for a truly decadent treat.
Have people coming for lunch and not sure what to cook? This simple, Spanish-style Chilled Almond Soup is absolutely delicious and very easy to make. It’s vegan, gluten and dairy-free, too, making it suitable for most people’s diets. Serve it with antipasto, grain salad and fresh fruit for a light and satisfying lunch.
This fragrant Orange and Almond Cake is one of my favourite cakes ever because it’s so simple and yet so delicious. It’s delightfully moist and dense, too, meaning that it keeps very well and can easily be transported to picnics and outdoor gatherings.
Aussies love hosting and attending barbecues in Summer – it’s always nice being outdoors and barbecues are a fuss-free way to entertain. This Chickpea, Avocado and Almond Salad (gluten, dairy and vegan) would be a welcome addition to any outdoor feast.
Cheesecake is always a popular Summer dessert and this gluten-free Berry Cheesecake with an almond meal crust has never failed to delight. You can use whatever single type of berry or combination of berries you can find to make this cake – there’s really no bad combination of berries.
