Another find at the hairdressers. Haven't tried this but will soon. Just wanted to post here instead of holding on to a piece of paper. This came from a British magazine.

Very good and very easy.Takes no time at all, and gives a lovely spicy twist to beans, which combined with the cashew nuts is totally delectable! I didn't use the coconut because I don't like it, sorry about that, but we really enjoyed this and I will definitely be making it again, I could have made twice as much and still have had no leftovers!
