So, what is cashew nut?

Cashew nuts are a delectable and nutritious food ingredient that is prized for its rich, buttery taste and versatility in cooking. The kidney-shaped nuts have a distinctively sweet and creamy flavor that complements both sweet and savory dishes. They are a rich source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, including copper, magnesium, and phosphorus. Cashews are often used in vegan and vegetarian recipes as a substitute for cheese or meat due to their creamy texture and nutty flavor. They can be enjoyed raw, roasted, or as a creamy cashew butter, making them a favorite ingredient in many cuisines around the world.
