Cashew Rice

I served this with the tofu from yesterday. It was super-easy, and actually had a lot of flavor! And Toby, who doesn’t like nuts in his food, certainly gobbled it up.   I bet you could use salted cashews too, since I had to add more salt to my rice at the end.

    This looks so good! Sometimes I want to make rice with dinner but I don’t want to make just plain boring rice. I’ll have to keep this recipe in mind, thanks for sharing!
