Vegan Cashew and Soy Bean Stir Fry. Pure Delish.

This is a super easy and cheap recipe that I came up with out of desperation and hunger. I love soy beans. Green soy beans are just delicious fried in Asian dishes and of course, they are super good for you.

The humble soy bean. What can't it do?

Make sure yours are ethically grown though. There are many forests and jungles in the world being torn down to plant these crops and many are genetically engineered. Beware the demon soybean. The devil in disguise.

Serves: Two.
Time: 10 minutes.


  • One onion, sliced.
  • 1 Tablespoon of oil.
  • 1 Tablespoon of minced ginger.
  • One clove of garlic, crushed.
  • Two cups of green soy beans ( sold in the freezer section of your local Asian grocer for around $2).
  • 1/4 cup of cashews.
  • 1 Tablespoon of soy sauce.

In a fry pan over medium to high heat, add the oil.
Once the oil is hot, add the onions, garlic and ginger and stir for about two minutes.
Add the soybeans, soy sauce and cashews and fry, stirring intermittently for about 7 minutes.
Serve with rice.

Quick and easy. Lush! xx


  1. This sounds delish! Will definitely be trying this! I love soy beans too, yummmm!

  2. Philippine pili nuts from the Bicol region in the Philippines is a great Filipino or Philippines food orsnack. Pili nuts are very healthy and nutritious indeed, being a source of energy, potassium and iron.They also have protein, dietary fiber / fibre, and calcium as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.  I know they have no cholesterol, no trans fat, and the unsalted ones have no sodium. What is great about the pili nut snack or treat is that they are so crisp, rich, and delicious.
