  • Coconut oil or olive oil melted to 1 1/2 tbsp
  • Maple syrup, 1 tbsp
  • Green curry paste * 1 tbsp
  • Curry powder* 1 tsp
  • Use more sugar to taste. 1 1/2 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
  • Half a teaspoon of ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

  • Cardamom, coriander, and one pinch of each ( optional).
  • 1 tsp lime zest (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 325° F (163° C). Line a baking tray with parchment paper. (Use more baking sheets if you are increasing the batch size).
  • Toast cashews for 5 minutes on a baking sheet.
  • Add oil, maple syrup, and green curry paste into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Whisk to combine.
  • Add the slightly toasted cashews to the curry mix. Mix well. Add remaining spices (curry through sea salt) and combine.

Add more cumin to intensify the curry flavor. You can also add more curry powder or coconut sugar to sweeten. Sprinkle with lime zest, and toss the salad to coat.
  • Keep leftovers at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 2-3 weeks. It’s best eaten within the first seven days!
