These easy Tamari Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds are a great addition to trail mix or a salad. Tamari elevates raw seeds to a whole new level!
Oh how I love easy recipes! These Tamari Pumpkin and Sunflower Seeds are one of those recipes. They literally take a few minutes to make.
My favorite way to use these is in a salad. They add a crunchy savory bite. Tamari, onion powder, and garlic powder elevate plain raw pumpkin and sunflower seeds to a whole new level.
They are also great for road trips and going on hikes. Add them to a trail mix for a savory element.
If you’ve never had tamari before, it is a soy sauce from Japan. It is a by product of miso, and is made with no or very little wheat, making it a great choice for people who cannot tolerate gluten. It is said to have a darker color and richer flavor than the common Chinese soy sauce.
It adds an umami flavor to whatever you add it to. I use it a lot in my cooking, especially Asian inspired dishes like Crispy Teriyaki Tofu. I’ve also used it to add a salty rich flavor to recipes like Tofu Bacon.
It is one of my favorite flavors to marinate tofu in. If you are someone who thinks they don’t like tofu, it might be because you haven’t had it prepared the right way. My Tofu Bacon recipe might surprise you.
Or, if you prefer something more indulgent, then maybe Baked Tofu Nuggets might be more to your liking. They are crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside.
As you can tell, I am a big fan of tofu, and hate the bad rap it gets. So if I can convince people to at least give it a shot, then my work here is done.
Did you know that it can also be made into Chocolate Pudding?
