Cashew Tofu Stir Fry

Cashew Tofu Stir Fry. Vegan Cashew Delight Recipe with Tofu and Veggies. Easy One Pot weeknight meal. Serve with rice or grains of choice. VeganRicha.com Vegan gluten-free Recipe

When I started my first job after grad school, I was in a new much larger city, with many options for lunches and dinners, many cuisines and types of restaurants. In those pre-gan & pre balance issues days, I tried to be open to trying out the new cuisines and new foods. Many times I was left disappointed. Coming from a mainly vegetarian, fresh food lifestyle (grew up eating mostly all Indian food with loads of beans and veggies), the eggs, cheese, overly used dairy products, meats etc felt stale to me. I learnt to like some of them because those were the options available at that time to someone in a new country, culture. Things have changed since then. More than decade has gone by, and I seek out more vegetarian and vegan restaurants because the restaurants that are vegan or vegetarian tend to have this freshness in the flavors of everything. Like something as simple as Thai food with sauces and curries. I liked thai before, but love it much more now. The fresh non meaty curries, non eggy/fishy sauces pack such a pleasing flavor that it makes me love the veggies in it. That probably is another reason I have started liking Tofu. Thai dishes are also easily flexible to your own preference. Have you had any changes in flavor preferences lately?

I love quick meals and this one is easy and quick to put together. It is my version of the Cashew delight or Cashew something from Thai restaurants. Toast the cashews, add the veggies and protein you like, add the sauces, cook for a few and serve.
