Healthy and Tasty High-Protein, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free Snack.

Here's one of my favourite snacks -  dry roasted nuts and seeds with a drizzle of organic tamari - super tasty and healthy.

If you have some friends over, it's a great treat for everyone. It's gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, vegan and superbly delicious! These nuts and seeds transform my garden salads and veggie stir-fries too - just a little sprinkle on top. I do love raw nuts and seeds, but when I make this, I so enjoy the crunch and flavour - great as a mid-afternoon energy boost too.

Dry roasted organic nuts and seeds with a drizzle of organic tamari

How to make toasted tamari nuts and seeds:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.
  2. Spread the nuts and seeds on a baking tray - not too thickly (or it will take longer)
  3. Place on top tray and dry roast for approx 10 minutes until browning and crunchy. At 5 mins, you may wish to swish them around a bit on the tray too to ensure even toasting. When they are growing, test the almonds to see if they are dry and crisp.
  4. When done, remove tray from oven and immediately drizzle a little tamari over the nuts and seeds and stir around. The heat evaporates the liquid and leaves a tasty coating on the nuts and seeds.
  5. (if you happen to splash a little too much on, just pop the tray back in the oven for a couple of minutes until the liquid evaporates)

Nuts and seeds are a healthy and filling snack, high in protein, fibre, vitamin E and lots of other nutrients and minerals. Try not to eat too many though, because they are quite high in calories. A small handful is all you need.
