Cashews are such a great addition to your diet in terms of healthy eating, being packed full of fibre and essential fats. Remember you only need a handful!

Below is a tasty stir fry which is perfect for the evenings that you don’t have much time for cooking. You can add meat or fish for extra protein or simply have as a vegetarian option. Serves 4

  • 3 oz of cashews
  • 1 small head of broccoli (cut into florets)
  • 1 yellow pepper (cut lengthways)
  • 1 red pepper (cut lengthways)
  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 1 large fresh chilli (deseeded and chopped finely)
  • 4 tsp soy sauce (Tamari is what I use as its wheat free)

  1. Chop the garlic finely and crush, leaving it aside for 5 minutes.
  2. Chop all of the vegetables before you start, so that they are all ready for the stir fry.
  3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok.
  4. Add in the garlic and chilli, tossing it for a minute. Do not let it go brown.
  5. Add in broccoli for another minute and then the peppers for another minute. Add the soy sauce, stir well.
  6. At the last minute add the cashews and stir through.
  7. Serve straight away in a large bowl.
  8. This dish would be perfect with cooked buckwheat or rice noodles.
