Cashew nuts are such a versatile cooking ingredient. Their naturally creamy texture is perfect for making dairy-free cream, ice cream, milk and cheese. They also make a great addition to stir fries and curries.

Cashew nuts are a good source of magnesium and copper, and have around 18% protein. They have a low fat content of 43%, mostly from unsaturated fatty acids. In particular, cashew nuts are high in oleic acid, which is also one of the defining constituents of olive oil. Cashew nuts are also a great source of potassium, iron and zinc.
