Amazing from the git-go. How in the world could you ever, ever go wrong with all the flavors and combination of asparagus and black bean sauce, with a sprinkle of cashews? I followed this exactly and what a treat this is. So easy, you won't believe it. The sauce is simply heavenly. You will want to just eat the sauce. I am absolutely sure about this. I can say you can put it on everything from chicken, to veggies, to salmon, or just spoon it in a cup and enjoy :) Seriously, a great, great recipe that I would highly recommend from the grand taste, and the ease.
