By now the fall weather has set in and making healthy easy to prepare comfort food such as this Thai Cashew Chicken Ramen is a favourite at my house. Just imagine tasty creamy broth with loads of tender veggies and noodles, it doesn’t get any better than this. In this recipe I have explored with a new flavour and added cashew butter, adding rich flavour bringing this gluten-free ramen to another level. Thai recipes traditionally use peanut butter, but too many people have severe allergies to peanuts, so I do not use peanut butter in any of my recipes. Honestly, this ramen is so delicious and so simple to make. After a long week or at the end of a busy day it is nice to sit down to the most flavourful hot bowl of Thai Cashew Chicken Ramen.¬†
