Easy Pan-Roasted Tamari Almonds

Stir them ‘til they’re toasted, and then sizzle tamari soy sauce into the hot pan. That’s it, done. Let’s make a batch of easy pan-roasted tamari almonds and watch the game while we munch on this delicious crunch. Now, please remind me who’s playing.

Easy Pan-Roasted Tamari Almonds

Tamari almonds are about the healthiest most satisfying snack you can eat, particularly when you’re craving something salty. Almonds are rich in healthy fats and they’re a good source of protein and fiber, not to mention magnesium and vitamin E.

Pan-roasted tamari almonds are better because they’re homemade. The nuts are fresher, and, when roasted at home, tamari almonds are a far sight cheaper than the ones you buy from bulk bins. And you know exactly how they’re made.

Tamari is high-quality Japanese soy sauce. It’s darker, and slightly thicker than regular soy sauce, with richer, less salty flavor, all around smoother on the tongue. It’s available wheat-free, which is great if you are gluten-intolerant–be sure to check the label.

Easy Pan-Roasted Tamari Almonds

Today’s tamari toasted almonds start with a teensy bit of olive oil in the pan. The oil gives the nuts a bit of shine and helps the tamari stick to the toasted almonds. Know that you don’t have to use the oil–often, I don’t. But I always roast the nuts in the pan—why bother turning on the oven?

Enliven any nut or seed with tamari, following the same pan-roast method. Like these easy pan-roasted tamari almonds, a variation of my tamari roasted sunflower seeds.

    • Good on you for a cleanse. One month and then you get the almonds? Reply · 30 January, 2016

  • I keep running out of tamari because I keep find more and more delicious ways to use it. I should probably set a bottle aside for the multiple batches of almonds I need to make. GREG Reply · 30 January, 2016

    I’m looking for a recipe for tamari almonds and was trying to read the 13 reviews of your recipe. I clicked under the photo of the almonds where it lists number of reviews and stars. Instead of seeing the reviews, I added a two star review! I’ve not made your recipe and I wasn’t intending to leave a review. Plus I’m sure your recipe is much better than two stars. Please delete my review (the 14th one). Thank you. Reply · 14 December, 2021
