I am very excited to announce the fourth edition of Let's go Nuts and I want to thank Aquadaze of Served with Love for giving me the opportunity to host this wonderful event she started in January.
The star of this edition is the Cashew Nut. So Lets go Nuts about Cashews!
Cashew nuts are actually the kidney-shaped seeds that adhere to the bottom of the cashew apple, the fruit of the cashew tree.
Cashews are a very good source of monounsaturated fats and copper, and a good source of magnesium and phosphorus. One of the healthiest nuts, you can find more about its nutritional details here.
The mildly flavored cashew is a very popular snack, often roasted and salted. Cashew nuts are an integral part of Asian Cuisine. They are used whole in meat and vegetable curries and are also ground with other ingredients to make rich and delicious gravies. The nut is also used to make wonderful desserts and as a garnish in several sweets. The cashew nut can also be used as a cheese alternative for vegans, especially in homemade cheese recipes.
Well with so many options lets get cooking with cashews! Here are the rules of the event...
