Ingredients You Need for Spicy Golden Turmeric Cashews [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

  • 3 cups cashews (soaked 2 hours)
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

How to Prepare Spicy Golden Turmeric Cashews [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

To Prep:
  1. Soak the cashews for 2 hours in cold water, then rinse and drain well. If you don’t have time for this, you can soak them for 5-10 minutes in hot water.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl well until all spices are completely soaked up and attached to the nuts, with no leftover spice in the bottom of the bowl.

To Dehydrate:

  1. Spread the nuts out on a single lined dehydrator sheet then dehydrate for 10-12 hours at 105°F or until completely dry and super crunchy. Remove and let cool.

To Bake:

  1. Spread the nuts on a single baking tray and bake at 300°F for 20-25 minutes or until super crunchy and dry, turning halfway through so they don’t burn. Leave to cool.
  2. Once completely cool, store in a tightly sealed glass jar in the cupboard for up to a few months.
