Vegan Cashew Pate Made With A Superfood

Sponsored post powered by Brandbaker

  This cashew pate is not only delicious but is very healthy too. This vegan pate is made with a superfood called nutritional yeast that gives it a lot of nutrition. I just love spreading this creamy cashew pate on crackers. Trust me after one bite of this cashew pate, you will want more and that's ok because it is loaded with protein, fiber, B vitamins, and lots of minerals.

 Sari Foods 100% Nutritional Yeast is the superfood ingredient in my 
cashew pate. This 100% Nutritional yeast is a  delicious salty, creamy, nutty, cheese-tasting superfood can be sprinkled on just about everything! I love sprinkling in over spaghetti squash and oatmeal. Sari's nutritional yeast is naturally comprised of 50% protein (a complete vegan source), over 20% fiber, contains all 18 amino acids and 15 different minerals (including iron, selenium and zinc) as well as a natural vitamin B-complex and Beta-glucans (known for their extreme immune enhancing properties).

Vegan Cashew Pate

1 cup raw cashews, soaked for at least 4 hours 
1/4 cup Sari nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
1/4 cup water
garlic powder

Oven 250 F

Drain and rinse cashews. Combine all ingredients (except paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper) in a blender or food processor until smooth. Place mixture on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Form the mixture into a round and sprinkle the top with the paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Bake for 50 minutes until edges are firm. Let the pate cool before serving. Serve with crackers.

I was also sent two other superfoods from Sari Foods

Sari Foods ORGANIC SPIRULINA is a product that I have written about and use in my smoothies. View my post here

Spirulina is the most nutrient dense food known to humankind, contains more protein content than any other food source and is the most planet-friendly source of protein!

This bag of planet-friendly organic spirulina is comprised of more than 60% protein and is a natural source of bioavailable iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, beta-carotine, B12, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, antioxidants and essential amino acids (GLA, Omega 3, 6 & 9’s). Spirulina has over 100 types of vitamins & nutrients - more than any other type of grain, plant, or herb - and they work together to perform miracles in the human body. 


 Sari Foods 100% food based vitamin C is nature’s complete complex and is also organic! Each serving gives you 500 mgs of Vitamin C.

Natural Vitamin C is the missing piece of the puzzle to your body’s immune system, offering protection against colds and many viruses. Vitamin C also fights free radicals, promotes cell regeneration and is a natural antihistamine which means it may even help keep allergies, asthma and inflammation in check!

These above powders are great in smoothies, giving them lots of nutrition. I could not taste either one when I added them to my smoothies. I make my smoothies with fruits and veggies and the powders blend in nicely, leaving the taste of my fruits and veggies.

At Sari Foods Company, their mission is to bring you the "Essence of Food”, empowering conscious consumers to return to nutrient dense, single ingredient, pure foods as our source of life and sustenance - just as nature intended.
