This is a really tasty, easy stir-fry (which I never make enough of!) recipe I found in Vegetarian Times. I have been getting that magazine for so many years and even though I find myself oohing and aahing over so many of the pictures and recipes, I find that I rarely actually make any of the recipes, which drives my husband crazy. After all, my hundreds of cookbooks are taking up so darn much space, I should be doing something with them, right?? Anyway, so I had several of these ingredients on hand already and it was a snap to come together. Simple and tasty over some steamed rice. Since my Hubbs isn't the biggest fan of brown rice, we did white rice. I loved the idea of the cashews in the stir-fry, because I always see recipes and items on menus with cashews in them, but never think to order them or make them, not sure why, but I just never do. Try this simple, quick, veggie-full dinner and have lots of time to do other things - like baking, what I'm doing now! Yum!
