I serve snacks in my Master Face Reading Program and one of the most appreciated and now requested recipes is Tamari Almonds and Sunflower Seeds. This is one of those recipes that is so simple that all it requires are the ingredients in it's name: Tamari and Almonds and Sunflower Seeds - that's it! And, all you have to do is heat the raw Almonds and Sunflower Seeds in a small frying pan until they are hot and then sprinkle with Tamari and keep stirring until it dries up and coats them. How easy is that? What emerges from the pan, is a savory delight! Tamari is not as salty as Soy Sauce and the Umami flavor is just perfect if you like crunchy snacks. You can actually use any kind of nut or seed with this simple recipe and it's always delicious. You can add other seasonings too if you want, like Garlic and Onion Powder or Smoked Paprika or ground Cumin, but I love the simplicity of this recipe. Tamari Almonds and Sunflower Seeds are also very good on top of Salad. I often double or triple this recipe to serve a crowd and it's always a crowd pleaser. This is truly one of my favorite snacks!
Tamari Almonds and Sunflower Seeds
1 cup slivered raw Almonds (can use whole Almonds as well)
1 cup raw Sunflower Seeds
1 - 2 teaspoons Tamari
In a small frying pan over medium, cook the Almonds and Sunflower Seeds until they are hot and you can smell their fragrance. Drizzle the Tamari over them and stir quickly to coat and cook only until the Tamari drys up. Turn off the heat, cool and serve.
Five Element Analysis
In Chinese Medicine Almonds are good for the Lungs and they belong to the Earth Element Sunflower Seeds and Tamari represent the Water Element and support the Kidneys. So this snack is good for you too! Eat these with a cup of Tea to bring in the Fire Element and make sure that you eat a Wood food too, like some Kale Chips or even some Celery and Dip to create a Five Element balance.
