Toast slivered almonds by baking them in the oven, cooking them on the stovetop or microwaving them on a microwave-safe plate. Although microwave-toasting doesn't give the nuts the same golden color, it's the fastest method for cooking crunchy nuts with toasted flavor.Know More
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or place a large, heavy-bottomed skillet on the stove. Heat it over medium heat until warmth can be felt when placing a hand over the bottom of the skillet.
Add nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. When toasting slivered almonds on the stovetop, add them to the preheated, ungreased pan. When toasting slivered almonds in the microwave, add the nuts and a little bit of butter to a microwave-safe plate.
Bake slivered almonds to approximately 10 to 15 minutes or cook them on the stovetop over medium heat for approximately seven to 10 minutes or until the almonds are golden. Stir the nuts every few minutes for even browning. Microwave slivered almonds for approximately four to five minutes on high. Stir the microwaving nuts every minute until they are crisp and have a toasted flavor.
