Chilli Cashew (or Almonds) Chicken Noodles

If you like healthy food that’s a bit on the exotic side, you’ll go nuts for our chilli cashew chicken noodles recipe!

There’s a distinctively oriental flavour to this dish, thanks to the fish and soy sauces alongside the red chillies and zesty lemon juice.

What elevates it to super-nutritious status is the nut content. Let’s start with the cashews. Cashew nuts offer a decent helping of vitamins and minerals. They are super high in the mineral copper, which helps your body create red blood cells, regulates blood pressure and keeps bone and tissue healthy.

Cashews are also packed with unsaturated fats, which can protect you against heart disease, and antioxidants, which guard against a range of conditions.

Almonds are well-known for their high vitamin E content. In fact, they are one of the top sources of this super vitamin, which protects your cells from damage and has been linked to a reduced risk of cancer, heart disease and Alzheimer’s.

Chilli Cashew Chicken Noodles

Just like cashews, almonds also boast high levels of antioxidants that help keep you healthy. They’re mainly found in the outer brown layer of skin, so choose unblanched (without the skin removed) almonds for the best health benefits.

An added bonus of this dish is the use of rice noodles. They are naturally gluten-free, so they’re suitable for anyone who has coeliac disease or is gluten-intolerant.

You can add an extra fiery touch by serving this recipe with chilli sauce on the side. Serve with a fresh, green salad, and you have a deliciously nutritious dish that will soon become your next family favourite!
