Monday Meal Prep – Green Curry Cashews
I love these! It’s great to have healthy snacks in the house, and these have the flare of lime zest mixed with the subtle kick from the cayenne pepper. I omitted the sugar since I’m on this paleo kick, but next time I’ll make a double batch as these babies went fast. We have pasted the recipe below. Enjoy!
Green Curry Cashews
- 1 lime
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon green curry paste
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 cups raw whole cashews
Heat the oven to 350ºF.
Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate.
In a medium bowl, combine the olive oil, sugar, curry paste, salt, cayenne pepper, and 1 teaspoon lime juice. Stir until blended. Add the cashews and stir to coat.
Spread the cashews on a sheet pan and bake, stirring the cashews and rotating the pan a few times, until lightly browned, 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle the roasted cashews with lime zest, and toss. Let cool completely, 15 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy, or store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
