How to Make Vegetable Cashew Stew

This super healthy stew is made unique by adding a handful of raisins and whole cashews. Sounds funny, I know, but once you try it, I trust that you'll agree that all of the ingredients go together beautifully.

This vegetable-cashew stew is rich in a number of phytonutrients, most notably, beta-carotene and indole-3-carbinole. Translation: eating plenty of this stew should decrease your risk of just about every chronic disease that we know of. - Ben Kim

Enjoy this delightful vegetable-cashew stew. Store leftovers in the refrigerator, and when re-heating over subsequent days, add a little vegetable broth or water to thin down if desired, as this soup thickens over time.
