Cauliflower and beef stirfry with cashew nuts

Although so much has happened this year, I cannot believe how fast it is going. It’s the first day of the seventh month, which means we are exactly halfway through 2015. It genuinely feels as if I wished you guys a happy new year with this mango and bacon salad only last week. If you haven’t started working through your new year’s resolutions, now might be a good time to start … 2016 is closing in – fast.

Today I’m wishing you all a happy midyear with this easy peasy cauliflower and beef stirfry with cashew nuts. I am a big fan of cauliflower and it has proven itself very versatile. Pairing it with beef, cashew nuts and a good amount of sriracha sauce works extremely well as the cauliflower absorbs a lot of the flavours. I served it with noodles, but it would be delicious with fried rice too.

Ingredients:

200 g egg noodles

1 onion, chopped

2 teaspoons garlic

300 g beef strips

300 g cauliflower florets

Handful of cashew nuts

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons sriracha sauce

Method:

  1. Cook the noodles according to packet instructions. Once cooked, drain and set aside.
  2. Sauté the onion and garlic in a splash of olive oil. When the onion starts to brown, add the beef and fry for about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the cauliflower, soy sauce and sriracha and fry until the cauliflower starts to soften slightly. You can add a few tablespoons of water for more sauce.
  4. Add the cashew nuts and stir well to ensure the sauce covers all the ingredients well.
  5. Serve hot with the noodles and some extra sriracha sauce if you like it hot.
