Braised Vegetables With Cashews. New Music From Pacific.


Recently seen through my lens.

So that all was before I got back from my quick trip to the Bahamas. I’ll have some warmer photos of that trip soon.

Also stop by tomorrow for some cute Halloween treats I made today and can’t wait to share with you.

To hold you over, today’s recipe is for a light veggie-rice bowl teeming with Asian flavors. The cashews add fun crunch.

Braised Vegetables With Cashews


1 Tbs peanut oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp grated fresh ginger
3/4 lb baby bok choy, cut into 4 inch lengths
3/4 cup baby corn, sliced in half on the diagonal
3/4 cup chicken or vegetable stock
3/4 cup canned, drained bamboo shoots
1 2/3 cup oyster mushrooms, sliced in half
2 tsp cornstarch
2 Tbs oyster sauce
2 tsp sesame oil
1 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup cashews
Steamed rice, to serve

2. Add the garlic and ginger and stir fry for 1 minute.
