Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Broccoli is one of those vegetables my daughter could eat every single day.  I always want to give her a variety of flavors, so coming up with tasty new ways to cook broccoli is a continuous challenge.  This recipe is so simple and such a flavorful method to serve this often overlooked vegetable.  Forget the cheese sauce; this mild Asian flavor will compliment a variety of main dishes.  It only uses a few ingredients and takes just a few minutes to prepare.  It won over my entire family, and I hope yours will love it too!

1 1/2 pounds fresh broccoli, cut into bite size florets
3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp brown sugar
3 Tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp white vinegar
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 cloves minced garlic
1/3 C lightly salted cashews, chopped


  1. Steam broccoli for 5-7 minutes until tender but still crisp.  Assemble on platter or shallow bowl.
  2. While the broccoli is steaming, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat.  
  3. Mix in brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, pepper, and garlic.  Bring to a boil then remove from heat.
  4. Stir in the cashews and pour sauce over broccoli.
  5. Serve immediately.
