tamari or soy sauce: put about 2 cups of almonds in a jar; sprinkle a couple tablespoons of tamari or soy sauce over them. Shake they jar to make sure they're well coated. roast for 10-15 minutes at 350 F, being careful not to burn them.

if you're adventurous, you can add any combination of garlic powder, chili powder, or other spices. Experiment!

Seeing as though I'm allergic to all nuts except almonds, I definitely do. I eat 'em salted, honey roasted, honey dipped, raw, etc. I eat at least 28 grams/day.

wow i've never heard of anyone being allergic to all nuts except almonds. but at least you got stuck with one of the best nuts out there.

on another note, anyone know how i could honey roast my own almonds? being honey roast any nut and your talking about some delish stuff.

Not to rain on your parade but just remember heating things hurts the vital phytonutrients.

Which is why I eat my fruit,veggies, nuts and seeds RAW.

The only thing I cook are meat and potatoes.

I enjoy roasted peanuts more. But yes Almonds are still very very good.
