      Made this without the chili (just because the children dont like it) and added more veges. We loved it. I think the cashews were great in this dish and the fresh basil made this stir-fry great. We left out the fish sauce as well as I couldn't find one in the supermarket that was gluten free. We will be making this dinner again.
