Ingredients

Adjust Servings:
300g (2 cups) cashews
2 tbsp shichimi togarashi
1 tbsp ground turmeric
1 tbsp sesame oil
¼ tsp salt

Variations

  • Raw cashews

I usually buy pre-roasted but if you have raw cashews, just roast in the oven until lightly golden before tossing in the spice mix and roasting further as per the recipe.

  • No schichimi togarashi

It’s a Japanese spice mix with sesame seeds, different chilli powders and occasionally some chopped nori (seaweed). It’s super delicious and if you can be bothered tracking some down you won’t have any problems finding uses for it. It’s brilliant on avocado or soft cheese (especially labneh) or poached eggs. If you don’t have any just use sesame seeds and a little chilli powder or crumbled dried chillies and if you like toss in some chopped nori but it’s not essential.

  • Different nuts

Almonds, macadamias or brazil nuts would be the best substitutes or use a mixture.

  • No sesame oil

It adds a lovely roasted flavour but any oil you’d normally cook with will work.

  • Black pepper

Is meant to help with the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric so feel free to add freshly ground pepper to your roast nuts.

  • No turmeric

Most commercial ‘curry’ powders have lots of turmeric so you could use a curry powder instead.

This snack comes with a warning (!). The turmeric looks pretty but it does like to stain things. Especially clothes. So don’t do as my Irishman did and wipe your fingers on your jeans.

The other warning is that they’re super delicious – addictively so. Don’t be surprised if they disappear much faster than you’d think. Although with all that turmeric you can be happy they’re doing good for more than just your taste buds. They also make a great edible gift.

Steps

1
Done

Preheat your oven to 180C (350F). In a medium bowl toss cashews, togarashi, turmeric, oil and salt until well mixed.

2
Done

Spread cashew mixture on a baking tray (I line mine with baking paper for easier clean up).

3
Done

Bake for 5 minutes. Check and stir. If cashews are golden, remove from the heat. If you like a darker roast leave in for another 5 minutes or so.

4
Done

Cool. Store in an airtight container. Will keep in the pantry for weeks to months (depending on how fresh your cashews were to begin with).
