CASHEW VEGETABLE STIR FRY

Prepared, written and photographed by NutraMilk nutritionist, Florencia Tagliavini.

Recipe inspired by Cotter Crunch.

This is one of our go-to dinner meals because it's simple, quick to make and a delicious way to include vegetables in your meal routine. Instead of using noodles we have spiralized veggies to have a similar texture and used fresh cashew butter made in the NutraMilk to create a creamy slightly sweet sauce - feel free to add protein of choice to this nutritious dish. Enjoy!
