Broccoli, Mushroom and Cashew Noodle Stirfry

Broccoli, Mushroom and Cashew Noodle Stirfry

This dish is very nourishing and filling. If you can’t be bothered to make up the sauce, simply use ready made teriyaki available at most supermarkets. Since I prefer my broccoli a bit more cooked, I fry it for a bit longer, but if you prefer yours to have a bit more crunch just reduce the cooking time to one or two minutes. With so many food blog events going on, it is difficult to keep up! This month’s theme for the CLICK event is noodles and since the folks over there are mainly vegetarian this recipe will fit in just nicely. The weekly Presto Pasta event accepts noodle dishes as well, I’ll be submitting this recipe too.

    Ruth – It’s my pleasure. I love participating!

    Dayna – Thanks! I do try to make things look as appetising as possible. What’s more, it’s the real deal!

    Bee – I know I know, but since your audience is mostly vegetarian I thought I’d cater for them. 😉

    Passionate Baker – Thanks! Eating dishes like this really doesn’t make me want to eat meat all the time.

    Lilandra – Have you tried making it yet? It’s really easy and yummy! :-)

    I’m sorry to have to say this but that dish is most definately NOT Japanese in the slightest. In fact the only japanese ingredient in it is Mirin. It is more like a noodle dish from a bad English/Chinese take-away.
    Why did you call this a Japanese dish, i’d like to know please?

    Ben: If you look at the date the recipe was published ages ago when I still tried to file every recipe under a different nationality. It was a mistake, so now I removed it from the Japanese section. “Asian” doesn’t fit into to current categories. It’s a tricky business.

    Loved this dish!! Cooked it for my vegetarian son & his partner & they loved it. Didn’t have any mirin so substituted sherry & was still great. Thanks so much
