Curried Buttery Cashews recipe

November 28, 2007

3 tablespoons butter
4 cups raw cashews (see cook's note)
2 teaspoons salt or 1 tablespoon Vege-Sal
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 pinch cayenne

Cook's notes: Find raw cashews at your local health food store. If your budget is tight, look for raw cashew pieces for less than half the price of whole raw cashews. Vege-Sal also is available at health food stores.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the butter in a big roasting pan and put it in the oven while it preheats.

When the butter is melted, pull the pan out of the oven, add the cashews, and stir until they're evenly coated with the butter. Return to the oven, and roast for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring 2 to 3 times.


While the cashews are roasting, stir together all the seasonings in a little dish.

When the cashews turn gold, remove from oven. Sprinkle seasonings over them, and stir until they're coated evenly. Store in a tightly lidded container.

Serves 20.
