Celiac.com 07/13/2019 – Looking for a delicious new way to prepare broccoli? This vaguely Asian twist on broccoli with cashews is quick, easy to make, and delicious over rice. It might just find a place in your go-to dinner lineup for summer.
- 1½ pounds fresh broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
- ½ cup chopped salted cashews
- ⅓ cup butter
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons white vinegar
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
Wash the broccoli, and place into a steamer, or a large pot with about 1 inch of water in the bottom.
Cover the pot, bring to a boil, and steam for 7 minutes, until tender, yet still crisp.
Drain, and arrange broccoli on a large shallow dish or serving plate.
While the broccoli is steaming, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat.
Stir in the brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, pepper and garlic.
Stir until the mixture comes to a boil, stirring, then immediately remove from the heat.
Stir in the cashews, mix until well-coated with sauce, and pour over the broccoli.
Serve over rice, or alone as a side to your favorite entrée.
