SunFood Raw Organic Whole Cashews Description

  • Creamy Hand-Cracked Superfood Snack
  • USDA Organic • Non GMO Project Verified
  • Raw • Vegan • Gluten-Free • Kosher

Originally native to Brazil and brought to Southeast Asia in the 1500s, cashews have long been revered for their irresistible taste and energizing nutrients including protein and healthy fats. Beyond being rich in magnesium, which may contribute to healthy immune function and normal bone health, cashews are a good source of zinc, iron and vitamin K. Plus they have vitamins B1 and B6. An incredibly healthy nut, cashews have a delicious, creamy flavor that is versatile enough to be used in a variety of dishes.

 

Our certified organic, truly raw Cashews are cultivated by small-scale organic farmers to provide you with the highest quality nuts available. Hand-cracked and minimally processed, our delicious cashew kernels are never roasted, leaving nutrients and enzymes intact. Cashews are great for when you need a quick boost of natural energy - these may be the perfect snack!


Directions

Suggested Use: Use cashews to add a creamy thickener to recipes, toss in trail mixes, salads, smoothies and cereals, or eat them straight out of the bag!

 

Storage: Reseal bag after opening. Store in a cool, dry place.

Vegan Quinoa & Veggie Casserole with “Cheese” Sauce

A piping hot, comforting casserole can make any kind of day a whole lot better. But many typical casseroles are loaded with cheese that can leave you feeling bogged down. Instead, try this vegan dish – topped with a lighter cashew “cheese” sauce that’ll have you happily licking your fork. The filling is loaded with broccoli, kale and sun-dried tomatoes for a nutritious, delicious lunch or dinner (which can be easily reheated for leftovers!).
