Fried Rice with Cashews

My husband makes the best fried rice.  This is his fried rice with cashews.  I recently posted about his Stir Fried Quinoa, which is also delicious.  That day, we were out of some of the main ingredients so he improvised.  This is the real version.

I could literally eat this entire bowl.  Since there is wild rice as well as cashews, this can be considered a full meal and not just as side dish.  It would a great Meatless Monday dish.  This is also a meal that comes together in minutes.  I am all about easy meals.

Recipe Notes

If you use raw cashews, you may want to toast them for a few minutes to bring out more flavor.
