YUM! These look absolutely delicious! I love the flavors you used, and I really like the cashews in this, too.

What a great stir fry dish. This would be good as a side dish but I could eat a bowl of it by itself for lunch!

Louanne, the cashews really make it what it is! Chris, don't tell anyone, but sometimes we have just this and a salad for dinner.
