Seriously, these are pant-busting good. Enjoy them with an icy cold beer, atop your favorite quinoa dish or just right out of the jar. Feel free to play both with type and amount of spices -- it's really hard to go wrong here as long as you don't over-roast and you salt them reasonably.
Serves: 21/2 pounds spiced nuts
  • 2½ pounds roasted cashews
  • 1-2 Tbs. neutral cooking oil (or coconut)
  • 2 Tbs. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. dried ginger
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • ½ tsp. dried garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 Tbs. sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place cashews on wax paper or parchment-lined baking sheet. Toss with oil -- use just enough to make nuts slick but no more.
  3. Assemble all spices (except sesame seeds and salt) and then blend together with spoon so properly mixed.
  4. Toss nuts with spice mixture to evenly coat. Spread out on cookie sheet and sprinkle with sesame seeds and salt.
  5. Bake for fifteen minutes, stirring until halfway through.
  6. Let them come to room temperature before you put them in jars or containers.
  7. Enjoy!
