  1. Mmmm Mmmmm Good. I had to use cremini mushies but they still tasted good in the dish. This made a wonderfully flavorful side for the grilled chicken and ginger garlic rice. I'm a great cashew fan and really loved their use here. I would be happy to have this again and again.
  2. Maybe just be the perfect spring side! If you love asparagus, cashew and Asian flavors you must try this wonderful and very simple side. I almost left out the shiitake as they are a bit price but am glad I did not. Thanks for the great side.
  3. Great, simple recipe but I added minced garlic and chopped onion before adding finely grated ginger to the oil. Followed the rest of the recipe and at the end, I added a cup water,mixed with 1 Tbsp cornstarch and 1 Tbsp soy sauce to the veggies which made it a little saucy and yummy. I served it with grilled salmon and everyone loved it at the Easter potluck. .
  4. Made this for Sunday dinner. Everyone loved it. In fact, I had to print the recipe out for my DIL. Really like the cashews touch. Made for Football Pool 2012.
  5. This is a great way to prepare asparagus. I am always looking for new ways to prepare our favorite veggies. We enjoyed this alongside a beef stir-fry. Made for Zaar Stars.
