Granola is one of my favorite things to have on hand for a quick breakfast or snack. I really enjoy creating granola recipes – I made some tasty ones for my new book including chocolate hazelnut and bourbon pecan. I also branched out into some savory granolas – and have fallen in love with those too.
I’m sharing the recipe for Curry Cashew Savory Granola and it’s amazing on plain coconut or soy yogurt. Savory granola is great as a salad topping, sprinkled on pasta or as a snack by the handful.
You could try making a vegan yogurt dressing with some garam masala and throw in some cooked garbanzo beans to make it a well-rounded meal topped with this crunchy topping.
