    This was a tasty side dish. It took a little more time than the side dishes I usually make. I used fresh broccoli and the entire dish tasted very fresh. I also used chopped cashews because that's what I had in the house. The only gripe I have is that it was missing something. Next time I'm going to try putting some garlic salt or minced garlic with salt in it to see if it'll help. Otherwise a good dish that I will make again!
