Salty Sesame Tamari Almonds

Nuts are always a great snack suggestion. They are high in protein, good fats and are full of minerals. One thing to keep in mind when having nuts is that they have certain substances in their skin that are hard for our bodies to digest. That's why it is a good idea to soak them before eating. Just like with legumes, soaking nuts helps break down these undigested substances in their skin making them easier for our digestive system. This way you will be able to absorb more of their great nutrition! All you have to do is put them in a bowl, cover them with water and leave them overnight. By morning you will have soft and delicious nuts ready for eating.

These tamari and sesame almonds give an extra bit of taste to normal almonds. All you have to do it pour tamari (or any soy sauce of your choice) over the almonds, then sprinkle over a bit of sesame oil and mix through so the sauce is evenly distributed over all the nuts. Pop them on a tray and into the oven on a low heat for approximately 1.5 hours.

Once they are ready let them cool and enjoy this salt tasty snack :)
