Thai herb roasted cashews, spicy, zesty, sweet, irresistible, and the quickest thing to disappear from your charcuterie board or kitchen table!



16 oz cashews whole, or halves and pieces of your choice (salted, or unsalted, roasted or not roasted it still works)

Juice from 2 limes, about 1/4 cup

2 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp minced fresh cilantro leaves

2 fresh kaffir lime leaves, stems removed and thinly chopped (optional, but amazing flavor bomb if you can find them)

1 tbsp minced fresh mint leaves

1 tbsp minced green onion, green part only

2 tbsp honey

1 tsp Thai red chili powder, more or less to spice preference

Salt to taste


Preheat oven to 300 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until all the cashews are coated. Bake cashews for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through, until more golden and the marinade is stuck to it.

Let cool to room temperature. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week, but don’t worry, they wont last that long!


I’ve never tried other nuts with this, but go for it! I think peanuts would be amazing, almonds, the nut sky is the limit!

Use whatever herbs you have handy! The ones I listed are more Thai, but try out different things if you want!
