Our founder grew up in Brazil and has been snaking on roasted cashews her entire life. Coming back from a visit to Brazil with a pack of salted cashews she decided that everyone should be able to eat these superfood snacks in the same way with their unadulterated natural taste and that's how KARU was born!
There are two things that are key to the best roasted cashew nuts:
- Toasting cashews only in their own oil
- Seasoning of salted cashews with only a dusting of salt
Easy Homemade Crunchy Chocolate Spread Recipe with only two ingredients!
Given that we love a nutty and chocolaty spread with bread, we experimented using our KARU Cacao Cashews and found that they are perfectly suited to creating a crunchy dark chocolate nut butter with a few simple steps. You will need a food processor, which will help you create a homemade chocolate spread that is easy to make, high in vegan protein, without palm oil (yay!), and has a crunchy nut texture!
Cashew nuts are not only snacked on their own, but can also be processed to make other products such a cashew spreads, cashew butter, cashew milk, cashew yogurt, cashew ice cream and many amazing recipes. Cashews are therefore a versatile addition to your diet. Now to the question, are cashews good for you?
Cashews are rich in a range of nutrients, including plant-based protein, fibre and important minerals and vitamins. These nuts are a great source of vegan protein and fibre that can form a part of a plant-based diet.
