  • Preheat your oven to 180ºC
  • Mix all ingredients in a bowl and put in on an oven tray (or parchment paper lined oven tray)
  • Place it in the oven for 10 minutes
  • Give it a good stir and put it back in the oven for around 5 minutes
  • Switch the oven off and keep the cashews in the oven for another 5 minutes
  • Once it is browned to your liking, take it out of the oven, cool and enjoy!
  • Put nuts in a glass bottlea and store in the freezer (nuts in the freezer are soooo crunchy! You will never store nuts any other way anymore)


You can also make this on a pan over medium heat, but remember to add the turmeric towards the end as it could burn pretty easily.
