Recipe: Moroccan Amlou Spread and Cheddar Toast

moroccan Amlou Recipe

One of the more traditional applications for culinary argan oil is a delicious roasted almond, honey, and argan oil spread.  It is similar to almond butter in the texture, but it does have a signature argan oil flavor that makes it a beautiful paste for pairing with cheese.  You can get the full recipe via Spruce here, and then follow my lead to make a simple snack of Amlou and Cheese Toast.  I featured 1 year old cheddar in this recipe for its melt-ability, but I also recommend a young to aged pecorino, as well as fresh goat cheese. On a cheese board, you can sub the amlou for quince paste or fig jam as a tasty, nutty spread to pair with cheeses.
