Superfood Snacks: Turmeric Curried Cashews
Crisp Fall days call for nourishing, warming foods to balance and revive, and these Turmeric Curried Cashews certainly fit the bill. I've combined some of my favorite seasonal herbs and spices to create a snack that is not only delicious, but delivers a powerful nutrition boost too.
Considered one of the most powerful herbs on the planet, Turmeric (its active compound is called Curcumin) offers a whole host of health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, boosting your immune system, neutralizing free radicals and boosting the body's own antioxidant mechanisms, improving neurological function and improving mood and mental health. Pairing Turmeric with Black Pepper (the active compound is called Bioperine), helps to make the compounds even more bio available to the body, giving even more of a boost to Turmeric's super powers!
Turmeric Curried Cashews
- 2 cups cashews
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin powder
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Preheat over to 400F. Melt coconut oil in a pan, and add all of the seasonings. Once melted, add the cashew nuts into the pan and stir, ensuring all are evenly coated. Pour onto a large baking sheet and spread out. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until toasty brown, stirring at the halfway point. Leave to cool, and store in an airtight container.
