    Broccoli is certainly not my favorite vegetable but my husband grows lots of it each year to freeze. The smoked almonds really help the flavor of this non-favorable veggie in our house.

    This one sounded better than it turned out for me. I could have just been me. The best part was the left over almonds we snacked on. The smoked almond flavor just didn't come out all that great with the broccoli for me. Just could have not been my night.
