Gluten Free Holiday Party Preparations

This Sunday evening I am throwing a little holiday soiree for a few friends in NYC before I head back to CA to spend 10 days with my family. I usually prepare a few dishes a couple days before the party and then spend the whole “day of” cooking.

I had to take a new approach this year because I will be busy all day Saturday and Sunday before the party. That means I had to pick dishes I could prepare in advance and that weren’t as time consuming as my normal fare.

While my Rosemary Roasted Cashews are pretty easy, these Tamari Roasted Almonds are even easier.

Gluten Free Tamari Roasted Almonds

1 pound raw unsalted (unblanched) almonds
1/3 cup gluten free tamari ( I used San-J wheat free Tamari )

Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit

In a bowl, stir together the almonds and tamari sauce. Pour the mixture onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake the mixture for 15 minutes, stirring three times throughout.

Remove from the oven and serve at room temperature.

More recipes and photos from the party to come.

Great stuff! I just roasted walnuts with a little sugar on them. I forget that roasted nuts are a wonderful healthy TASTY treat.
Have a happy holiday time with your family.

Toasting fresh nuts is such a simple treat. Using Ina Garten's recipes got me hooked.
