Delicious and fresh. I didn't boiling the veg (brocolli, chestnut mushrooms, baby corn, onion, green pepper) first just put them straight in a pan on a high heat. Roasted the cashews for <10 mins 180 degrees prior to adding to pan (the heat over temp should have probably been a bit lower). Also added fresh ginger and garlic. Made the homemade oyster sauce as sugested and the quantities worked out perfectly. I am usually a bit sceptical as don't like dry food but this was spot on. Will definitely make again.

Very nice, I didn't use cahews and included red chilli and ginger and used whatever veg was in my fridge. Definately a good recipe to use up any left over veg.

Went down a treat. I used bags of asda mixed fresh veg - carrots, broccoli,green beans, corn cobs,leeks and cabbage.
Even my veggie hating son ate most of them - amazing what a nice sauce will do!

Lovely. Sweet and full of flavour! Also had it with chunks of butter&garlic baguette.

I followed the recipe except for the cashews, and it was wonderful! I'd definitely try fresh veggies next time, as I opted for a frozen veggie mix, which made them a bit mushy, but my roommies were definitely delighted. Cheers!
