Find out how to make this cashew and vegetable delicacy

Cashew and vegetable pilaf.

This is an Indian-flavored vegetarian dinner and it’s a one-pot meal. A pilaf is typically a rice dish that is cooked for about 20 minutes in stock with spices, vegetables and meat. For this quick dinner, I’ve shortened the time and work using microwaveable brown rice.

Toasted cashews add extra crunch and flavor. The recipe calls for green beans and carrots, but you can use any vegetables you have on hand or even frozen ones. Use this recipe as a blueprint for amounts and timing.

Toast cashews

Microwave rice

Microwave green beans and carrot


1/2 cup raw or natural cashews

2 cups green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 cup carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

1 package microwave brown rice to make 1 1/2 cups cooked

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 cup sliced onion

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon turmeric

Pinch cayenne

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup raisins

1 cup vegetable broth


Toast cashews in a toaster oven or under the broiler for 1 minute or until golden. Watch to see they do not burn. Add green beans and carrots to a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high 2 minutes. Microwave brown rice according to package instructions and measure 1 1/2-cups. Save any remaining rice for another meal. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute 3 minutes. Add the garlic, turmeric, cayenne, cinnamon, raisins, green beans, carrots and chicken. Stir to combine ingredients. Add the rice and vegetable broth. Cook to absorb the liquid, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the cashews. Add salt to taste. Mix well.
