I noticed in some recipes it says to soak cashews and sometimes its says to soak raw cashews. Would I be correct to assume I should always use raw cashews for all recipes? or can you use roasted too?

if a recipe doesn't specify raw, use roasted.

(although i doubt anyone would want you to soak roasted cashews. so i suppose if it says to soak cashews, just assume they mean raw.)

Soaking them is usually to make them softer so they'll blend up creamy and smooth. If the dish is going to be cooked anyways (like a cashew ricotta in lasagna), I have no problem using roasted cashews.

Just to be sure I'm with the program, it's ok to use raw cashews in a dish that will *not* be cooked, right?

I figured, but then sometimes my "figuring" leads to bad things!

Roasted will work in recipes that call for raw and soaked, but it will taste different - more assertively cashewy. I sometimes use a combo of raw and roasted, because roasted is usually cheaper, and i don't find 'more cashewy' bad for most things. But yes if soaking is called for raw is what is intended.
