Sweet and Spicy Toasted Cashews



Toasting soaked cashews

Nuts make a great snack, as they provide fiber, protein, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Along with their nutritional value, nuts give that crunch that we often want in our snack foods, making it a healthy alternative to other snacks. This recipe takes cashews--delicious on their own--and coats them in warming spices to make a flavorful and unique snack. 

Why Soak Your Cashews?

Prior to toasting and spicing the cashews, this recipe has you soak them for about one day in water. For nuts, seeds, grains and beans (all seeds of the plants they come from), soaking prior to cooking helps improve digestibility and nutrient availability in these plant foods by helping to remove anti-nutrients, such as phytates and lectins, that can bind the nutrients in them and cause digestive upset for some. For more on why and how to soak seed foods for digestion and nutrient density, check out my blog post that goes more into depth on this topic.
