Broccoli With Cashews

Just a dressed-up version of broccoli. You can use other nuts if you choose but we have found this to be the best. Can be made as a side but with a little brown rice pilaf it can be a main dish.

This was delicious; quick and easy to prepare. I didn't have enough broccoli for the recipe so I subbed fresh asparagus cut into pieces. Skipped the optional red pepper flakes (so our toddler daughter could eat this, too.) A wok worked very well. I would recommend using an oil with a high smoke point though. For this recipe I substituted grapeseed oil. Served with my posted dim sum recipe and Cooking Red Rice . Thanks for posting! cg ;)

Mmm, mmm, mmm. There can't be a more delicious way to enjoy bright green, still crunchy broccoli. I did end up adding a little water and a lid to the skillet to soften the broccoli just a bit more quickly in order to avoid burning the chili flakes, garlic and cashews. Incredibly good, DiScharf.
