Cashew paste is smooth and creamy and ideal for creating non-dairy milks, creams, smoothies, ice-creams and sauces. It is produced by grinding cashews until a smooth paste is formed. Also great for thickening sauces and curries. It is typically a little runnier than blanched almond paste and readily combines with other ingredients in any recipe.
The protein to carbohydrate ratio makes cashew paste an appealing snack option if you’re trying to adhere to a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet as well as being suitable for many types of gluten/grain free diets.
Cashews are not actually nuts but the seeds of the cashew tree, known scientifically as Anacardium occidentale. These seeds, encased in shells that are removed before processing, adhere to the base of the cashew apple, which is the tree’s fruit. Rich in healthy monounsaturated fats and essential minerals, cashews also offer a number of health benefits.
Cashew paste is also great for use in baking as it imparts a mild and buttery flavour to compliment any recipe, and gives a chewy texture to cookies. Also excellent to create fillings for homemade chocolates. Download our free ebook Nut Butter and Pastes Recipe Ebook here for lots of cashew paste recipe ideas.
