Broccoli with cashews...sharing recipes friday!

Hello everyone!
Today I am adding a new
feature to my blog!
Besides decorating I love
I always joke that it is
what made my husband fall in
love with me! Ha ha...I cooked for
him on our second date. That was it....he was
smitten. When I get annoyed with him I think
to myself ...if only I never learned to cook....
Actually he thought my mom cooked the meal
on our second date so the third date
I cooked in front of him!
Friends always ask me for recipes so I thought
I would start sharing them...
Today I am
going to share
my favourite
way of
having ...broccoli!
Steam broccoli for 7 minutes
or until crisp...
Chop 1/3 cup of cashews...

You will also need:
1/3 cup of butter
1tbsp of brown sugar
3 tbsp of soy sauce
2 tsp white vinegar
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cloves of garlic- chopped

Melt 1/3 cup of butter in sauce pan
Add garlic and saute till thickened

Mix in 1tbsp brown sugar
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp of white vinegar
1/4 tsp pepper
Bring this to a boil.

Mix in cashews
and pour over

Serve immediately!

Broccoli with cashews...delicious!

  11. Hi Pamela
    Thank you for sharing this broccoli recipe (love this veg)... and thank you for popping over to mine today. I love posting recipes too, so we'll be recipe sharing. As for me... I'm an hopeless romantic... I met and fell in love with my husband in Australia and gave up everything I knew to be with him... I phone him every morning when he gets to work, to tell him I love him... and he's a Valentines baby, so is just filled with love himself. Ours is a very sappy house! Lx

  12. This broccoli recipe looks delicious. It is one of the (few) veggies my kids like and we have it often, so a new recipe is very welcome. x Sharon @ Roses and Rust

  13. I love the receipe...and of course the giveaway; how lovely...gorgeous pearls!!

  14. Great sounding recipe...We love broccoli at our house. Do you make green beans almondine too? YUM! That is an old favorite at our house! Hugs-Diana

  15. I have to make that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! screaming with delight I have a whole costco bag of brocolli!

  16. I love broccoli and am always trying to come up with news ways to serve it so I will definitely try this. I actually saw something on Fox news the other night about all of the health benefits of broccoli-it really is a super food!Thanks for sharing your recipe!

    Best Valentine's wishes,
