It is not recommended to roast cashew nuts in a microwave oven as they can easily burn and become overcooked. It is best to roast cashews in an oven or on a stovetop using a pan. However, if you really want to roast cashews in a microwave, here is a possible method:
- Spread the cashews in a single layer on a microwave-safe plate.
- Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, checking and stirring every 30 seconds.
- Continue microwaving and stirring until the cashews are golden brown and fragrant.
- Allow the cashews to cool for a few minutes before serving or using in a recipe.
