Wasabi Soy Almonds

Wasabi soy Almonds are a wonderful snack! Everyone in my family absolutely loves them!
Wasabi is Japanese horseradish and is actually the gnarled root of a plant that is a member of the cabbage family.
Wasabi is great for digestion because it contains enzymes that digest proteins. Besides the fact that it wasabi cleanses the palate, it is also used as an antidote for fish poisoning and maybe why it is an important part of Japanese cuisine.
Wasabi is a heating food and is kapha balancing.
Wasabi Soy Almonds
4 cups almonds (soaked overnight)
1 cup Bragg's Liquid Amino's or Nama Shoyu
1/4 cup powdered wasabi

Soak almonds overnight. The next morning mix Bragg's and powdered wasabi. Let sit for 10 minutes. Add wasabi soy mixture to almonds and let soak for 1 hour. Drain off excess liquid and place almonds on a dehydrator tray. Dehydrate for 24-28 hours at 115 degrees. Make sure you save some for yourself because if your family knows they are around, they are gone immediately.

What's your favorite snack?

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bounds. Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. ~Patanjali

I hope you are enjoying this wet spring! I am looking forward to a long, hot summer with lots of rafting! In the mean time, have some wasabi soy almonds to warm up!
