I just got home from a week in Oregon for my first week of Yoga Teacher Training. It was an incredible experience for many reasons, but the part I would love to share with you is the FOOD. We had all our meals prepared for us by a vegan chef! It was amazing food with so many flavors. I will be working on recreating a few for the site, fingers crossed that I can pull it off :)
One item I did ask how to make was the Chili-Lime Toasted Cashews we were served during the afternoon snack time. These were seriously amazing and oh so simple.
Chili-Lime Toasted Cashews
4 cups raw cashews
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (if possible)
1-2 tsp sesame oil (olive oil works too)
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp sea salt
Heat oil in a large skillet on medium high heat, toss in the cashew and stir until edges start to brown. Remove from heat and toss in the remaining ingredients, coat evenly. Enjoy alone or use as a flavorful salad topping.
