I multiply the sauce part of the recipe by 6 and we eat it with rice. Don't skip the cashews, they are amazing!!!!

What a great recipe! I skipped the stir fry vegetables (less complaining from my 4 year old and the chance that she might actually think about eating it) and added a little ginger. I double the sauce and I think next time I will triple it. Thanks for sharing.
