My friend Aaron was raving about these ultra addicting Sriracha Cashews he was having from Nature Box the other day. He suggested that I tried them so I looked them up and thought it was funny that the ingredients didn’t actually contain any Sriracha sauce. So Instead of buying them I set out to create my own. Since I’ve never tried the Nature Box kind I can’t say they taste the same but I do think these are pretty addicting. I like the spice but if you can’t take the heat you cut the Sriracha in half.
SRIRACHA AND HONEY ROASTED CASHEWS print this recipe!
4 cups of Raw Cashews
1/2 cup of Honey
2 tablespoons of Sriracha (use less if you can’t take the heat!)
2 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 thumb size grated Ginger
3 tablespoon of Sesame Seeds
1. Preheat the oven to 350º. In a medium bowl, whisk together honey, sriracha, ginger and olive oil. Pour mixture with raw cashews and stir until evenly coated. Fold in sesame seeds.
2. On a lined baking sheet (don’t forget to line the baking sheet or it makes for a little messier clean up!) spread cashews evenly onto sheet tray. Bake for 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally. Once golden allow cashews to cool before serving!
