1 Tbsp sweet paprika
1 Tbsp garam masala
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1 Tbsp finely grated peeled fresh ginger
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup Trader Joe’s Cultured Cashew Beverage
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup peanut oil
Kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper

1 tsp plant based red food coloring

12 chicken skinless drumsticks (about 4 1/4 pounds)


Preheat the oven to 450°. In a small skillet, toast the paprika, garam masala, cumin, coriander and turmeric over moderately low heat, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer the spices to a medium bowl and cool slightly. Stir in the ginger, garlic, cultured cashew milk, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of the oil, food coloring and season with salt and pepper.

In a large bowl, add the spiced buttermilk and rub it onto the chicken. Arrange the chicken in a deep roasting pan leaving 2 inches between the pieces. Roast for 45 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Serve with Basmati Rice. Enjoy!
