The first time I tried tamari roasted almonds I was hooked. What a simple but wonderful flavor combination. What I don’t like is the price for this tasty treat. Why pay for someone else to put 2 simple ingredients together when you can do it for yourself at a much lower cost? If you like tamari roasted almonds too then roast some up yourself and save some money in the process.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups raw almonds
  • 1/3 cup low sodium tamari (if you follow a gluten free diet be sure to use a gluten free sauce)

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  2. Spread the raw almonds in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake approximately 10 minutes stirring occasionally or until you smell a nice nutty aroma but not browning the nuts.
  4. Remove to a heat proof bowl and pour the tamari over the nuts. Stir to coat.
  5. Let sit 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Transfer the nuts back to the baking sheet with a slotted spoon. Spread in an even layer.
  7. Place the baking sheet back in the oven and bake, stirring occasionally for 15-18 minutes or until dry and nicely browned.
  8. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

    What is tamari?

    • Kristy says:

      Hi Kristi,
      Tamari is a type of soy sauce, Japanese in origin. It is a bit darker and richer in flavor than regular soy sauce, less salty and if it is a true tamari it is wheat free as well which is good for those on a gluten free diet. You can usually find it at health food stores or in Asian markets. Hope this helps.

    Fantastic! What a lot of the tamari almond recipes I’ve seen miss, is the importance of baking the almonds first, then coating then when they’re hot, and baking again. Couple of secret ingredients: I like to add a sprinkle of Spice Islands Old Hickory Smoked Salt, and about a teaspoon of cocoa powder when coating the almonds. I think the cocoa helps the tamari stick to the almonds and adds a subtle richness.
    Thanks for this!
