These Parmesan and Almond Asparagus Fries are a low carb, way delicious way to spruce up your side dish tonight.

The fun things about exploring a new ingredient every other week is that I can really figure out funky, out of the ordinary ways of using foods. And one of my favorite discoveries was that of using almonds as a breading in the form of these crispy Almond Tofu Nuggets. You basically just grind almonds into a coarse crumb using a food processor, then mix them with some spices (like smoked paprika, salt, and pepper!) Then you’ll just use them in place of bread crumbs when breading things for a low carb yet way delicious alternative. Today we’re using this tasty combo to bread asparagus, creating crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, too-good-to-stop-eating Asparagus Fries!
