I'm on a low-sodium diet and one of the things I miss most is Asian food. I still eat it from time to time in a restaurant, but it's almost always so SO salty that I get a headache. My all-time favorite Asian dish (well, dish that doesn't involve noodles) is Cashew Chicken. PF Chang's has an unbeleivable recipe, which also contains almonds. It's divine. And salty.
I've been searching for a healthier version with a lot less sodium, but a whole lot of taste. I think I've hit the jackpot with this recipe from HowSweetEats. Just look at her dish.
Don't you want to dive into it with your face? She uses low-sodium soy sauce, which is essential for me. I am considering substituting some salt-free chicken broth for at least half the soy sauce next time I make it, and I'm also going to add some water chestnuts because I adore their texture.
I'm so thrilled to find a low-sodium, not to mention super tasty, relatively healthy, and downright pretty version of my favorite Asian dish. Give it a try over some nice, fluffy rice.
