Cashew Rice Bowl has an Asian Flare that satisfies your cravings. A nice bowl of comfort food is just right for family and friends and this one is super easy. Are you one of those neighbors who help out their friends and bring over dishes when someone is ill? Me too. They can be ready to eat that night or prepared so that the meal can put in the freezer for a future night.
Well, I have a friend, Ashley of Center Cut Cook, who has been hit with some bad news lately. Some of us bloggers thought that since we can’t actually walk over with a dish of comfort food we could do a virtual visit and all post a delicious recipe that anyone could share with a friend or neighbor when they were in need. The family spends a lot of days in the hospital with no time for cooking healthy meals.
This post went up over two years ago and the fight continues. Ashley’s husband is still in a chemotherapy regimen in his fight against colon cancer. Their baby boy, Miles, just now got his new liver. There were many complications but he has now been able to go home (3-18-16). Miles still needs a kidney transplant though. It doesn’t sound real does it?
This is the recipe that I thought would be a good meal to make for the Wagner’s or for any friend in need. It is a little bit different because of the Asian flavors and it keeps really really well. In the fridge and freezer. That’s the ticket. Comfort food for all of us and comfort food to share with friends and loved ones in need.
Cashew Rice Bowl
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
- 8 ounces uncooked rice
- 4 ounces mushrooms, chopped
- 4 ounces cashews
- 4 tablespoons tamari soy sauce, wheat free and very similar to soy sauce and kids love it
- Pre-cook the rice in a rice cooker or in any of your favorite ways. I use 2 cups water to 1 cup of rice in my rice cooker.
- Add the oil to a skillet and heat to medium.
- Saute the onion and bell peppers and saute for about 5 minutes until the onion is soft.
- Add the mushrooms and cook about 10 minutes. A lot of liquid will cook out of the mushrooms. That is just natural.
- Add the cooked rice and cashews.
- Fry over medium heat for about 3 minutes to heat through.
- Add the tamari sauce and heat through for another 2 minutes.
Serve as a side dish or as a main dish.
