The “mango of the forest” is the nickname given to the fruit of the cashew tree, which produces the delicious cashews. While these are often referred to as nuts, they are actually stone fruit. Their high protein and magnesium content means cashews are the perfect soul food, and also incredibly tasty as vegan parmesan.

What you need
Vegan parmesan (can be easily prepared and kept for later consumption):
100 g MorgenLand cashews
2 tsp breadcrumbs
1 tsp coarse sea salt
1 tsp dried rosemary
Ingredients for 2 servings of summer pasta:
Pasta (quantity as desired)
500 g fresh tomatoes
2 spring onions
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 pinch sugar
Sea salt to taste
1 small handful fresh oregano leaves
What you do
Roast the cashews in an oil-free pan until golden-brown. Finely grind the roasted nuts (in a blender or with mortar and pestle), then mix with 2 tsp breadcrumbs, 1 tsp fine sea salt and – as desired – 1 tsp dried rosemary or marjoram.
Goes well with summer pasta:
Boil the pasta as per instructions.
In the meantime, peel the spring onions, and cut into small rings. Wash the tomatoes, and cut into quarters.
Heat a generous dash of olive oil in a pan.
Add in the spring onions, and allow to brown lightly. Fold in the tomatoes, and leave to simmer for approx. 2 minutes.
Deglaze with balsamic vinegar, and season to taste with sea salt, fresh oregano leaves, and a pinch of sugar.
