Broccoli With Nuts and Cherries

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

The original of this recipe came from the Dec/Jan 2010 Taste of Home Healthy Cooking, but since I do love the nuts & cherries, it has been tweaked.


  1. Place broccoli in a steamer basket, then put that into a large saucepan containing an inch of water. Bring to a boil, then cover & steam 3 to 4 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute walnuts & garlic in the oil until garlic is tender.
  3. Stir in the cherries, salt, pepper flakes & broccoli, tossing to coat.

Love broccoli and this is definitely a winner in our book! Although I am mildly surprised that you didn't put cranberries in it. LOL! Thank you SydneyMike for sharing another of your wonderful recipes.

I looked at this recipe several times since you posted it and just wasn't sure about the combinations, but decided to give it a try. So glad I did. This is one of the best ways I have ever eaten broccoli! This is going into my Best of 2012 book! Great flavors and textures. Made for Best of 2011 game.
