Ingredients

  • 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
  • 1 cup of cashews
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • Cooked rice or noodles, for serving

Cooking Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, maple syrup, cornstarch, minced garlic, grated ginger, red pepper flakes (if using), salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the broccoli florets to the skillet and stir-fry for about 5 minutes, or until they are bright green and slightly tender.
  4. Push the broccoli to one side of the skillet and add the cashews to the other side. Toast the cashews for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are lightly browned and fragrant.
  5. Pour the sauce mixture over the broccoli and cashews. Stir everything together until the sauce thickens and coats the vegetables and cashews evenly. This should take about 2-3 minutes.
  6. Remove the skillet from the heat and serve the Broccoli and Cashew Stir Fry over cooked rice or noodles. Enjoy!
