Feast your eyes on these beautiful, roasted, curried cashews:
I 100% adore curry spiced cashews. When I was in college, I lived in this awesome little house with 4 other people and 1 bathroom. Granted, we had intermittent ant/mice/opossum issues, but I did love that place.
The best part was there was this little store right across the street that had just about everything a college student would need. It had a little produce section with all of the essentials, toilet paper and shampoo, a whole wall of drinks, and a nifty little bulk foods section.
One day while I was picking up some milk, I noticed curry cashews in one of the bulk containers and decided to give them a try.
A love affair started that day.
I mean, cashews are already delicious in their plain, raw form. And you guys know all about my curry obsession. It’s a match made in heaven, right?
Did you know that cashews are low in sugar and rich in fiber, heart-healthy fats, and plant protein? They are also a good source of copper, magnesium, and manganese. These nutrients are important for energy production, brain health, immunity, and bone health.
Did you know that cashews are really not nuts? Botanically, a nut is a dry fruit that has a hard shell that covers a single seed. Examples of true nuts include acorns, chestnuts, and hazelnuts.
The fruits of the cashew, almond, and pistachio plants are not nuts, but are rather classified as drupes. What are drupes you ask? Drupes are fruits that are fleshy on the outside and contain a shell covering a seed on the inside. The cashews that we eat are these seeds.
Okay, back to the recipe.
I made a huge batch of these and brought in a container to work to share with my office mates. There were quite a few curry-stained fingers around the office that day!
This curry cashew recipe is really easy to make, and it comes together in about 15 minutes. Perfect for last minute guests or a dish to bring to a party!
Make a batch for your next get together and see how fast they disappear!
