Step 1Line a baking sheet with Country Range Baking Parchment or Foil. In a bowl, or pestle and mortar, add the thyme, chilli flakes, oregano, garlic powder, black pepper, lemon zest and sugar. If you have a pestle and mortar, grind all of the spices together to break them up a bit. You won't get much of a paste, but the thyme should break down a bit and the flakes will get smaller. Otherwise, the back of a heavy spoon will suffice.
Step 2Whisk the egg whites until frothy (about 2 minutes). Add the almonds and fold them over to coat. Add the spices mixture and mix again until they seem evenly distributed.
Step 3Spread the nuts onto the baking sheet and give them all a very generous grind of sea salt. Sprinkle half of the parmesan evenly, and toss to coat. Make sure the nuts are spread in a single layer and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the nuts. Add a fresh grind of black pepper all over (optional).
Step 4Bake in the middle of the oven for 25 minutes at 175°C. Remove to cool completely before serving. Add a final little dusting of parmesan when they are hot out of the oven.
