Sweet & Spicy Mandarin-Cashew Compote

4 Jan

Perfect with greens, broccoli, rice, tofu – anything really. I threw this together and it evolved into a compote/chutney, which was not my original intention. It was so yummy!

The below measurements are rough guesses, since I was throwing things in, so I can try and recreate it in the future.

1 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp hot chili oil
1/2 cup raw cashews, loosely chopped
1 smallish can of mandarin oranges, drained and rinsed slightly
1 1/2 tsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp sugar

heat the oil in a pan or wok over medium high heat. Add the chili oil. You may want to have a fan on, it got a little smokey. Add the cashews and toss until lightly toasted. Add the remaining ingredients, and cook, tossing or stirring occasionally, until the oranges have disintegrated and the mixture becomes a sauce.
