Roasted Tamari Almonds

Roasted Tamari Almonds

I guarantee that almond lovers with swoon with delight over these crunchy and highly addictive almonds roasted with salty tamari. Considering that they are so ridiculously easy to make, it's a wonder that I ever purchased overpriced bags of pre-prepared tamari almonds from stores — which sometimes even included ingredients other than just raw almonds and tamari.

This recipe makes a full pan so you'll have some on hand to snack on throughout the week when you get the munchies. Although, if you're a certain friend of mine, a full batch might only last a day!

Be sure to use genuine tamari — easily available at any grocer nowadays — instead of common Chinese soy sauce. Tamari has a much richer and deeper flavor that is essential for these almonds. Besides, if you haven't already tried tamari yet, you'll find that you'll never go back to cheap soy sauces.

  • 2 1/2 cups raw almonds
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons tamari
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat an oven to 350°F.

  • In a small bowl, toss the almonds with the tamari. Spread the almonds evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Roast on the middle rack of the oven for 7 minutes. Flip the almonds, and bake for another 5 to 7 minutes until browned. If there is still tamari on the baking sheet, turn off the oven, leave the door ajar, and let the pan sit until the tamari has evaporated.

  • Remove the sheet from the oven and let cool completely. These keep well in a sealed jar for a good number of weeks, although I doubt they will last that long. They're that good.
