Do I have to add cashews? Absolutely not! If you're not a cashew fan, then for sure eliminate them.
Can I add rice to add to the meal? Of course, and we do when making it for our families, which includes active kiddos who are not necessarily trying to significantly reduce carbohydrates. We love Jasmine rice as well as brown rice.
