Author Notes

Mmmm, toasted cashews are delicious! This recipe combines so many flavors that are all brought together with the cashews. This is a classic Paleo-style meal, served by itself. No need for rice here, it can stand on its own in taste and satisfaction. Adding the green onions at the end gives it a fresh zest that brings out the rest of the flavors on the plate. Enjoy!
