Tamari-roasted almonds

Tamari Almonds

Tamari almonds, December 2011

The tamari almonds you find in the bulk section at natural food stores are wonderful, salty, and addictive. However, they’re pricey and, if you’re eating gluten-free, they’re prohibited because traditional soy sauce contains gluten. This recipe gives you almonds comparable to the ones in stores and is quick and easy to make at home.

Tamari-Roasted Almonds
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
Serves: 24
  • 1 pound raw almonds, skin-on (about 3 cups)

  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt
