Curried Cashews

As you are gearing up for Thanksgiving travel and black Friday shopping, remember to plan ahead to stay on track with your healthy eating plan.  Nuts make a great portable snack- buy individual pre-portioned packs to store in your car, carry on, purse, or pocket. Or, better yet... make your own roasted nuts and portion about 1/4 cup in snack-sized bags. 

Try this yummy, warm and toasty recipe to keep on hand for when you are out and about this week.

Curried Cashews
Makes about 12 servings (1/4 cup each)

3 cups unsalted, raw cashews
3Tb lemon juice
2Tb curry powder
1tsp turmeric
1Tb coconut sugar
1tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Line baking sheet with aluminum foil. 

Whisk together lemon juice, curry, turmeric, coconut sugar, salt and cayenne.  Pour over cashews and toss until evenly coated.  Spread evenly on baking sheet.  Cook in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until browned, stirring every 10 minutes.
