It's almost too easy to go overboard on nuts, but these cashews have so much flavor from curry powder and fresh lime zest and lime juice that one handful really does the trick.

Makes 2 cups


  • Grated zest of 1 lime
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 4 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp. fine sea salt
  • 2 cups raw cashews


    Many ovens don't cook evenly, so it's important to shake the nuts around a few times while they roast. Pay special attention to the nuts near the edges of the pan, since those tend to brown more quickly.

    Preheat the oven to 300° F.

    In a large bowl, combine the lime zest, lime juice, curry powder and salt. Add the cashews and toss to coat.

    Spread the nuts in an even layer on a baking sheet and roast, stirring every 10 minutes, until the cashews are lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature, then store in an airtight container.
