Herb Roasted Cashew Nuts

If you are looking for a nibbly snack for your next Netflix marathon these herb roasted cashew nuts are perfect – full of flavour, healthy fats and so easy to make!
Do you struggle not to snack when you’re watching TV? Our particular Achilles heel is The Great British Bake Off. Seriously how does anyone watch this show without cake??! But if savoury is your thing, and you want something a little less unhealthy than a family bag of crisps (all to yourself) then look no further than these herb roasted cashew nuts.
With so few ingredients and so simple to make I’m almost embarrassed to call this a recipe! But I’m putting it out here because we can eat these by the fist full and there may be someone who’s not thought of it already and therefore living a deprived life 😉
Just 6 ingredients are needed (plus a bit of salt and pepper) for these healthy snacks.
But feel free to add your own flavours – I’ve also made these with a pinch of both garlic and onion powder. If you prefer something a little spicier though try these Spice Roasted Cashews – full of zing and sweet maple syrup. Phil LOVES these.
Me I’m just happy to have slightly healthier, high protein snacks that are ready to go in just 15 minutes. Did you know that cashews have a lower fat content than other nuts? It’s also unsaturated fatty acids, similar to those found in olive oil.
We’re lucky enough to have our own giant herb pot right outside the back door so fresh thyme is always in abundance for these because doesn’t thyme just grow like a mad thing?! All the excuse I need to make sure there’s a decently regular supply of these healthier little snacks!
If you’re not all nibbly snacked out, or even have a nut allergy, try these Garlic & Parmesan Chickpeas – they’re just as easy and just as moreishly tasty!
If you make this recipe or any of the recipes from The Cook & Him we’d LOVE to see! Just snap a picture and share it on Instagram using #thecookandhim and tagging @thecookandhim in the photo itself (as this guarantees we’ll see your picture!)
