Tamari Roasted Almonds

almonds2 Tamari Roasted Almonds

I have been quiet this week because I have been busy preparing for Dan’s baptism party. We are having my huge family over to celebrate the occasion. Dan’s separation anxiety has held me hostage and so I was playing catch up all week trying to get ready! Dan will literally not let me put him down for more than 30 minutes a day. My mom came to help me and she has dubbed him “W.B.E” (Worst Baby Ever). Today, Dan was actually really good. He crawled around the whole house contentedly and he even took a few steps for me (hope that continues…) Maybe he is finally coming around to the fact that we are not the same person. We’ll see.

I thought I would post a simple snack idea since I was sitting down for a few minutes!


1/4 cup San-J Wheat-Free Tamari Sauce

6 oz. almonds (I prefer plain, unsalted)

Combine the almonds and tamari sauce in a medium bowl. Let the almonds marinate with the tamari sauce for about 30 minutes. Drain the almonds. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and roast at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes. You may want to stick around in case your almonds roast a little faster than mine! Loosen the almonds with a spatula. Serve.

Remember this snack is good for you, but it is energy-packed, so try and exercise restraint!

If you have a friend around, you may want to double the recipe!

Note: One of my dear readers informed me that roasting nuts above 170 degrees may release free radicals. Blogging is great for learning new things; it is amazing how much I have learned in a year! Anyway, check out the article here and try the recipe at a lower temperature if you are concerned about this issue!

  1. Hey, I just wanted to say that I love this blog! These sound really yummy…but I read here: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=george&dbid=104 that roasting nuts at a temperature higher than 170 degrees causes the production of free radicals, so maybe I’ll try roasting these at a lower temperature for a little longer. But thanks for the idea; it’s great. =)

  2. I used to LOVE tamari almonds. It was a great day when I figured out that I could just make them myself! The first few weeks after the Little Pottamus was born I ate them in the middle of the night when I’d wake up starving and needing to nurse him. Interesting tip about the high roasting temp. I’ll have to think about that the next time I roast nuts.

  3. I eat these all of the time, but usually purchase ready-made ones and they are so expensive. I am happy to learn how easy it will be to just make some myself! Thanks for the great tip!

  4. Those look yum! Hope Dan’s baptism goes well tonight. Is he going to scream when you have to hand him over to the priest/pastor?

    We’ll be thinking about you.

  5. Natalie, the tamari almonds were divine! I could have eaten the entire bowl! Thanks for having us over; you guys are the best! Love you!

  6. I just read in “Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker” that you can make tamari almonds in the crockpot, which might be a low enough temperature to prevent those free radicals.
