spicy honey cashews recipeIf you’ve ever been to an event where there are fresh roasted nuts of all flavors and varieties, you know they smell amazing. Making them at home isn’t difficult, and you’ll be amazed how close they’ll taste to the more expensive counterpart. The best thing is that they’re the perfect snack on the go, so pack some on your next road trip!

Spicy Honey Roasted Cashews

1 Tbls peanut oil (or sesame oil)
2 Tbls honey
1 Tbls lemon or lime juice
1 Tbls curry powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 1/2 cups cashews or almonds

Directions:

Heat the oven to 300°F. Combine all first 6 ingredients in a small pan. Stir and heat on low until everything is well combined. Pour sauce over nuts and mix well. Layout on a cookie sheet either sprayed with spray-oil or lined with parchment paper. Roast for 20 to 30 minutes.

Place the pistachios in a bowl and pour the hot curry seasoning over nuts. Toss with a spatula or spoon until the nuts are fully coated. Spread the seasoned nuts onto a parchment-lined baking tray. Roast the nuts for about 25 minutes, stirring once at halfway mark, until the coating looks baked on and dry. Allow to cool, then break cashews apart and store in a zip-lock bag or individual containers for your next road trip.
