These vegan gluten free Sesame Tamari Almonds are sweet and savory. They take minutes to make, which is a dream come true for any hostess!
Quick and Easy
I made these Sesame Tamari Almonds because I really like the Maple Chipotle Cashews that I made awhile back. The cashew recipe was incredibly quick and easy, so I figured why not make another flavored nut recipe.
These are made on the stovetop, and only take about five minutes. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool so that you don’t burn your mouth.
If you are having guests, these are the perfect appetizer. Any recipe that can be thrown together quickly is a dream come true for a hostess. They can be made a few days ahead of time, which is another bonus.
I remember going to a party years ago and there were flavored nuts as an appetizer. Back then I wouldn’t have taken the time to make a flavored almond recipe. I had no idea how easy it was, or that it only takes a few minutes to make.
Instead of making them I’d buy them and leave the cooking to someone else. I considered myself too busy to make things like hummus or salad dressing, which are some of the easiest things to make.
It took me leaving a teaching career to realize how much I love cooking and creating recipes. Back then, I was too drained by the end of the day to want to create anything in the kitchen.
I am glad to have that chapter of my life over because now I get to follow my passion doing what I love – creating recipes and sharing them with all of you!
Sweet and Savory
These almonds are sweet and savory. I made these with agave syrup the first time, and maple syrup the second time. I prefer the maple syrup, but they could be made with either one. They both add a sweet touch.
Low sodium gluten free tamari gives these nuts a savory touch, and toasted sesame oil imparts a nutty flavor.These Sesame Tamari Almonds are sweet and savory. They take minutes to make, which is a dream come true for any hostess! Click To Tweet
