Cashew Gravy

This vegan friendly recipe adds some great flavour and protein to your meal! Cashews contain antioxidants, fiber and heart friendly fatty acids that help keep you regular, energized and healthy. They are also a great source of Zinc – which your body uses for the production, repair and functioning of DNA, which is very important during the rapid cell growth that occurs during pregnancy.

Ingredients
2 TBSP olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup cashews ground to powder – not paste
1 1/2 cup water
2 TBSP soy sauce
1 TBSP corn starch dissolved in 1/2 cup water

Heat oil in pan on medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 2-3 minutes.

Add cashew powder, water, soy sauce and stir to combine. Increase heat and stir in starch mixture. Stir continuously until it comes to a boil.

Remove from heat, add pepper to taste. Store in fridge for up to a week.
