Easy Bell Pepper and Cashew Coconut Curry Stir Fry

"Easy peasy stir fry recipe. Serve with couscous or rice. NOTE: You CAN add extra "heat" to this recipe (extra cayenne pepper or curry paste) to suit your own tastes. I have deliberately kept the flavors mild in this recipe in order to not overshadow the taste of the fresh peppers and cashews. I love spicy hot food, but sometimes a mild take on things is a nice change from my routine. You be the judge!"

  1. I really loved this curry/stir-fry. I left the recipe as is and I think it was quite nice. I toasted my cashews in the oven before adding and also added some simple pan fried tofu dusted with a sprinking of salt on the side and served over rice. It was the perfect meal. I will be making this again and again. Thanks for this simple yet elegant meal. I look forward to trying more of your recipes!
  2. We enjoyed this very much, fresh and full of flavour, we dont tend to use salt or flavour enhancers, so found the recipe very good as is. It was very quickly prepared, and felt like a very exotic dish for a simple mid-week supper! Thank you Shannon, for another excellent recipe!
  3. Really delicious dish! It's true that the flavors are a little bland at first, but all it needed was salt to taste and then the flavors come alive! My family loved this and we will make it again as it is a delicious healthy dish that was easy to put together. Thanks again Shannon for another terrific recipe!
  4. This looked and smelled delicious, but it was very bland, as others have commented. It tasted like it was missing something, but I don't know what. I served it over basmati rice. Don't think I'll be making this again, unfortunately.
  5. Easy and quick, for sure, but for us, VERY bland. I followed the recipe absolutely exactly, even though I was tempted to add stuff. So, I can fairly rate this as just ok, as it is. I think if I made this again, I'd add some type of chili, and salt! Do love the cashews though- that was a nice touch. Thanks!


<p><strong><em>Thank you to everyone who has tried my recipes!</em></strong> I appreciate your feedback and the fact that you took the time to post a review.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I am a vegetarian (pescetarian) who occasionally indulges in sushi and seafood, so the majority of my recipes reflect my preferences. I always try to offer substitutions in my recipes that can be made for my carnivorous friends. <br /> <br />I believe that vegetarians can make just about ANY meat dish under the sun by making smart substitutions of vegetarian mock meats, tofu, or vegetables. If a dish calls for meat or poultry, I NEVER let that stop me. I can make just about ANYTHING vegetarian...and taste just as good, if not BETTER, than the real thing. <br /> <br />&nbsp;<br /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></p>
