Made on the stove, sautéed broccolini with spiced almonds uses a mix of cumin and cayenne pepper. The best sides are fast and don’t hog valuable oven space.


  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped almonds
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 bunches broccolini (about 1 pound), ends trimmed
  • Flaky sea salt for serving


  1. In a small bowl, combine the cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, toast the almonds for 1 minute. Add the olive oil and spice mix.
  3. Sauté the broccolini until bright green and tender but still crisp—about 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt before serving.
