View Full Version : Substitute for Pine Nuts?
I have noticed a lot of raw recipes call for pine nuts which I have a hard time finding. And when I do, they are very, very expensive.
Is there another nut that can be substituted? Cashews perhaps?

They are expensive aren't they, i find that macadamia nuts are a good subsitute. Then i would chose either cashews or walnuts

Sunflower seeds, cashews, almonds, macadamias.

I don't think pine nuts are that expensive; they seem so, because a pound of them costs a lot, but they're also very light. A pound of pine nuts is a LOT of nuts...remember that our recipes call for nuts by the cup, not the pound.

pine nuts have a unique flavour, that Im not really keen on, so most of the time I substitute them anyway, usually with a mixure of sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and cashews, and that seems to work for me.

I have been with a raw family for the past week and this lady uses cashews and sesame seeds together and cahsews most excusivley. Pine nuts are suppose to provide the cheese like flavor, as does a cahews, additionally, a red bell pepper does that as well, so include it too, if your recipe will allow for such
