Recipe Notes

I like to use dried mushrooms that I rehydrate 30 minutes before making the stir fry. Feel free to use any nut in place of cashews. 

For a base, consider sushi white rice (can use a can of Native Forest simple coconut milk as the liquid, boiling) OR Miracle rice or noodles (konjac root, which is a great prebiotic source) OR quinoa OR cauliflower rice.
