Chilli & Lime Roasted Cashews

chillicashews These chilli and lime cashews are very easy to make and they are great when entertaining guests.

 

I was lucky enough to sample the entire range of Yumpowder spice blends a couple of weeks ago.

Yumpowder is an Australian spice company that makes and sells paleo friendly spice blends. There are currently five blends to choose from (Religiously Garlic, Original, Chilli & Lime, Italian, Vegan Chicken salt) – and I’m not sure which one is my favourite.

When I sampled the Chilli & Lime spice the first thought that entered my head was “wow…. this would be great on roasted cashews”

So here it is, my recipe for Chilli & Lime Cashews made in a few easy steps with the Yumpowder Chilli & Lime spice blend.

I actually served these up during a spice workshop a few weeks ago and they all disappeared very quickly before I even had a chance to try a few myself. So popular in fact, that a few of the ladies went home and made a batch for themselves later that day.  Enjoy x M
