Can I substitute cashews for macadamia nuts?
I don’t really like macadamia nuts and they are very expensive in northern Manitoba. My question is can you substitute them for cashews.
I am really enjoying rocking body raw.
Certainly! Cashews are a fabulous substitution for macadamia nuts. The have only a slightly more oily texture, so if you ever feel that the recipe could use a bit more oil- simply add a dash of olive oil. Some people also feel that macadamias lend themselves to the mock-cheese flavor better than cashews. I don’t feel this way, but I bump up the “cheesiness” by adding a bit of nutritional yeast to satisfy those who do.
I am thrilled to hear you are enjoying the raw foods on the Rocking Body Raw Food Diet. Let me know how I can best support you on your raw food adventure.
