Recipe by SALSIEPIE
"A new recipe a neighbor gave us. What a hit with my family. Just the right mixture of garlic and cashews with our favorite side dish, broccoli. And, so very easy to make!! If in a pinch, you could probably use frozen broccoli too, but I haven't tried."

1 1/2 pounds
fresh broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
ground black pepper
chopped salted cashews
This is a good recipe. The broccoli is tasty, but my husband thought there was too little sauce. The cashews tasted great with the sauce. Try toasting the cashews (375 degrees for 8-10 minutes on a cookie sheet) first.
I was really excited about this recipe. The flavor was very good, but 7 minutes was too long to boil the broccoli. I took it out after 5 minutes and it was mushy. Maybe my pieces were too small? I would definitely try it again with less steaming time.
We liked this recipe. I did cut back on the butter (used half the recommended) but followed everything else in recipe. I think next time I will saute the garlic in the butter a bit before adding the remaining ingredients for the sauce. Also, I will allow the sauce contents to boil for a couple of minutes to allow the sauce to thicken a bit so that it will stick to the broccoli a bit better. Overall, good recipe...I'll be making this again.
I couldn't believe how unbelievably fantastic this recipe turned out to be. My mom and I devoured this in less than 10 minutes. It just had the perfect flavor, the perfect amount of sweet, plus the perfect amount of tang. I asked my mom how she would rate it on a scale from 1 to 5, and her answer was... "from a broccoli lover's perspective... a 10"... and I agree with her 100%! I'm definitely making this one again!
Just made this for the first time and I will absolutely make it again! I only used about 3 tablespoons of butter insead of the full 5 and didn't seem to miss anything. This was so tasty and goes great with a light fish. I made the sauce and tossed the broccoli in it before serving instead of just pouring it over. We loved it to the last little floret!
This broccoli is sooo good. I made it twice already for a family get together and a party at work and everyone loved it. I had so many people ask for the recipe. The only change I made was adding 1 tbsp of cornstarch to thicken the sauce.
This was the highlight of the dinner I made tonight. I was surprised when we all ignored our chicken in order to eat more broccoli. I used half broccoli and half sliced onions, which was very good over rice. I think I'll add some more vegetables next time-- bell pepper, celery, maybe carrots or water chestnuts-- and serve it over rice as a vegetarian stir-fry. Thanks so much for the recipe. It's excellent! I used half the amount of butter called for to cut down on the fat.
Yes, yes, yes!!! Incredible hit with my family, including 3 children (11, 12 and 14). They continued to take extra helpings until it was all gone. I added a 1/2 Tbls. cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it. I also simmered the garlic for a bit in the butter first to meld the flavor. Thank you so much! This is a great recipe for any day or special occasion. The cashews make it 'gourmet treat'.
