WTF’s For Dinner: 10-Minute Broccoli And Cashew Noodles

Are you feeling that rising anxiety of WTF’s for dinner this evening? Don’t worry, we got you. This quick veggie noodle dish is fresh, packs a satisfying flavour punch and has lots of good protein.


Stir-fries are the ultimate convenience food. Investing in the staple condiments means you’ll pretty much be able to cobble together a nice meal from virtually anything you’ve got lying around the fridge. Soy sauce, rice wine?vinegar?and sweet?chilli’sauce are all you need for a quick and easy Asian-style dish. If you want to get even more?flavours?into your pan, try adding a little fish sauce or oyster sauce. That’s the best thing about a stir-fry, it’s all about your own taste so get experimenting.
