Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Place almonds in a shallow baking pan. Bake 5 minutes or until warm. Immediately place nuts, oil, and salt in a food processor.* Cover and process 10 minutes or until thick and spreadable, stopping to scrape bowl occasionally the first 5 minutes.

  • Add harissa paste; cover and process until combined. If necessary to reach desired consistency, add 1 to 2 tablespoons additional vegetable oil, processing until combined. Store in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks or freeze up to 1 month.

Spicy Almond Sauce:

Place Spicy Almond Butter in a small saucepan. Gradually stir in an equal amount of canned unsweetened light coconut milk; heat through.


We do not recommend using a blender for this recipe.


Spread on pita bread or flour tortillas. Use to brush on chicken skewers or to flavor stir-fries and other Asian dishes. Toss with hot cooked pasta or rice.
