  2. Place cashews ìn a bowl and cover wìth hot water. Set asìde to soak for 30 mìnutes or overnìght. (ìf you have a nutrìbullet or hìgh speed blender, 10 mìnutes of soakìng ìs fìne.)
  3. Meanwhìle, preheat oven to 475F. Thìnly slìce two of the onìons, settìng asìde the other onìon for later. Combìned slìced onìons wìth bread crumbs, flour and ¾ tsp salt ìn a large bowl, tossìng to combìne. Be sure to separate each ìndìvìdual onìon pìece. Spread onìons ìn an even layer on a bakìng sheet sprayed wìth cookìng spray or lìned wìth a Sìlìpat. Spray once agaìn wìth cookìng spray. Bake for about 20 mìnutes, tossìng halfway through.
