Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1  Silky Cashew Nut Noodles

Heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-low heat

Once hot, add the cashew nuts and cook for 3-4 min, or until they've darkened slightly in colour

Once coloured, set them aside to cool slightly and save the pan for later

2 Vegetable Noodles & Silky Cashew Nut Sauce

Boil a kettle

Top, tail, peel and finely dice the carrot[s]

Top, tail and finely dice the courgette[s]

Slice the chestnut mushrooms finely

3  Silky Cashew Nut Noodles

Peel and finely slice the red onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

4  Silky Cashew Nut Noodles

Return the pan to a medium heat with 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] vegetable oil

Once hot, add the diced carrot, diced courgette, sliced onion, sliced mushrooms and half of the chopped garlic with a pinch of salt

Cook for 10-15 min or until they're starting to caramelise

5  Silky Cashew Nut Noodles

While the vegetables caramelise, add the wholewheat noodles to a pot of boiled water (enough to cover them) with a pinch of salt over a high heat

Cook them for 4-6 min or until they're tender but with a slight bite

Once cooked, reserve a cup of the noodle water, then drain and rinse the noodles under cold water briefly before returning them to the pot

6  Silky Cashew Nut Noodles

While the noodles cook, add 3/4 of the cooled cashews to a food processor (or pestle & mortar) and blitz (or grind) coarsely

Add the agave nectar, remaining chopped garlic, 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] olive oil and a large pinch of salt

Add 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] of the reserved noodle water and blitz (or grind) - this is your creamy cashew nut butter

7  Silky Cashew Nut Noodles

Chop the coriander finely, including the stalks, then chop the remaining cashew nuts coarsely

Cut the red chilli[es] in half lengthways, deseed (scrape the seeds out with a teaspoon) and chop finely

Once the vegetables have caramelised, add the drained noodles with the creamy cashew nut butter, soy sauce and half of the chopped coriander (save the rest for garnish!) – these are your vegetable noodles
