Cumin Roasted Cashews

Are you crazy for cashews? We certainly are and that's why we've always got these cumin and chili-spiced nuts on hand.

Bite Me Bit

"I couldn't care less about who sees my bits…my bits looked the size of a cashew nut."

-Colin Farrell


1 egg white
1 tbsp water
4 cups whole unsalted cashews
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper


1) Preheat oven to 250ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2) In a large bowl, whisk egg white and water. Add cashews and toss to coat. Transfer to a colander and drain for 2 minutes. In another bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add cashews and toss to coat.

3) Arrange nuts in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake 50-55 minutes, stirring once. Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.

Yield: 3½ cups
