Broccoli has never tasted so good! You can eat it on its own as it already packs everything you need - carbs, protein, fat and fiber; or you can serve it with rice and salmon.
When making the sauce bring the mixture to just a shimmer so the flavour can combine. Either rice or apple vinegar will work. You can use frozen broccoli straight from the freezer.
1 lb [ 500g ] broccoli, fresh or defrosted
1/2 cup cashews
For the sauce:
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp vinegar, apple or rice
1/2 tbsp maple syrup, honey or brown sugar
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper for taste

1Place the broccoli into a medium pot and cover it with water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes, or until tender. Pierce it with a fork, if it goes through easily, it’s cooked.
2Drain it and set aside.
3Mix all the ingredients for the sauce together and pour into a small saucepan. Bring to a shimer. It should only take a couple of minutes. If you are using sugar, wait for it to dissolve. The sauce should be just beginning to shimmer. Add cashews and shimmer for another minute.
4Pour the sauce with cashews over the broccoli and serve.
