So, what is cashew?

Cashews are a versatile nut that can be used in a variety of culinary applications. Native to Brazil, these kidney-shaped nuts have a slightly sweet, buttery flavor and a crunchy texture. They are rich in protein, healthy fats, and essential minerals like copper, magnesium, and phosphorus. Cashews are often used in vegan and vegetarian cooking as a substitute for dairy products because they can be blended into a creamy texture. They are also commonly roasted or used in stir-fry dishes to add a nutty crunch. Cashews are a delicious and nutritious addition to any diet.
