preparation Combine ground red pepper and black pepper in a pie pan. Toss soy crumbles or tenders in this mixture to coat. Heat oil in a large, heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven.

* To roast slivered, chopped or sliced almonds : Spread in an un-greased baking pan. Place in 350ºF oven and bake 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and fragrant; stir once or twice to assure even browning. Note that almonds will continue to roast slightly after removing from oven.
