Organic Cashew Pieces

About

Cashews are a popular snack and staple ingredient in many vegan recipes. They have a rich flavour which makes them easy to eat on their own, or lightly roasted and salted. Cashews are not as hard as other nuts and you will never find them sold in their shell. This is because the inside of their shell contains a compound called cashew balm, a resin related to the poison ivy family that must be carefully removed before the nut is able to be consumed. Cashews are an excellent source of protein, gut-healthy dietary fibre, heart-healthy unsaturated fats, potassium, B vitamins and folate.

Uses

Cashew pieces have a fresh, crunchy texture that is a little softer than most other nuts making them easy to blend into a rich, smooth paste. This is ideal in vegan recipes for slices, cakes, butters, milks and cheeses. Cashews are also delicious to snack on by themselves or added to granola, muesli, baked goods, salads and stir-fries. If you’re not a peanut fan, use cashews in place of peanuts for your homemade satay sauces. Combine cashew pieces with other nuts, seeds and dried fruits into a trail mix to suit your taste buds, or simply sprinkle them over savoury dishes as a crunchy topper. You could even slightly roast and flavour your own cashew pieces to make an even tastier snack; chilli, smoked paprika, garlic salt, nutritional yeast, maple syrup, honey… The options are endless. This snack would also be perfect for entertaining, served in a ramekin on their own or on a platter alongside a range of other snacking goodies.
