Rosemary Roasted Cashews
This is another recipe I stole from my mom that we are always expected to bring to family gatherings. It’s an easy appetizer with a slight kick. I know what you are thinking. They are just nuts… But, they are not just nuts, these cashews are served warm and have the perfect mixture of sweet and spicy with a unique twist of rosemary. Plus they take 15 minutes to make!
- 1 1/4 lb cashew nuts
- 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- 2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons Kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
Place the nuts on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes until they are warmed through. Meanwhile, combine the rosemary, pepper, sugar, salt and butter in a small bowl. Toss warm nuts with the rosemary mixture in a large plastic bag until the nuts are completely coated. Serve warm.
*** Can be warmed in a microwave
I used slightly salted cashew for this batch because it was all I could find at the store, but I try to use raw cashews.
Place the cashews in an oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
Love using my rosemary herb. It has become one of my favorites!
