Rosemary Spiced Cashews are an easy yet delicious snack or party appetizer with a perfect blend of sweet and spicy.
Cashews have long been a healthy snack and appetizer. But when you spice it up just a bit, they become even more amazing. A perfect bite-size taste of delicious.
When my garden herbs are prolific, I’m always looking for ways to use them in cooking. Rosemary is a favorite herb for its foliage, it’s fragrance… and taste. So versatile, it’s always in my garden or window sill.
Cashews are packed with “vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These include vitamins E, K, and B6, along with minerals like copper, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, and selenium, all of which are important for maintaining good bodily function.”
An easy yet delicious snack or party appetizer with a perfect blend of sweet and spicy.
- 1/2 lb unsalted cashews
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread cashews in a single layer on a sheet pan and toast about 5 minutes. Or toast in a dry skillet for the same amount of time.
In a large bowl combine rosemary, cayenne, sugar, salt and melted butter. Toss warm cashews with spices.
I love to keep these in a mason jar in the refrigerator for a quick and delicious snack.
