Salt-free Cashew Spice Blend
Salt-free cashew spice blend is a sprinkle that adds a zesty crunch and flavor blast to salads, pasta dishes, soups, and on vegetables.
Initially, I came up with this salt-free cashew sprinkle to replace grated Parmesan on pasta. While it doesn’t taste like Parmesan, it gives a nutty spicy flavor and texture that replaces Parmesan really well. Salt-free cashew spice blend adds that extra blast of flavor, with the benefit of a little crunch too. Now I use the salt-free cashew spice blend to liven up lots of dishes . . .pizza, pasta bakes, salads, soups. It is always a garnish for the Mirepoix Mirepoix Lentil Soup. And it’s salt-free! The lime juice or juice from a very tart lemon gives it enough zestiness that you don’t miss the salt.
The Salt-free cashew spice blend can be refrigerated for up to 7 days. It freezes well for up to 3 or 4 months. I just keep in the freezer so it’s available anytime I need to dress up a dish.
