Only just seeing this question sorry! How did you go? I don’t think you should add an extra cup of stock as that will be very liquid. Does the base ask you to add any?

Tried this one on the family tonight and it was a hit. The family scored it 8/10 which means I will be making it again! I did as Pauline suggested, and added the cashews with the veg for the last hour. Served it with rice.

I would personally add them in that last hour when you add the broccoli myself 🙂
