  • 1 medium head of broccoli
  • 5½ tablespoons | 1/3 cup of cashew or almond butter
  • 3 cloves of garlic chopped very finely
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar (sub apple cider vinegar if you don't have any)
  • 60mls | 1/4 cup Tamari (sub coconut aminos or soy sauce if you don't have this)
  • 1/4 teaspoon chilli flakes or a small fresh birds eye chilli chopped finely
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 120mls | 1/2 cup water


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Wash the broccoli and cut up into large bite size pieces. (I used the florets and the stalks)
  • Add all of the other ingredients to an oven proof dish and whisk together. It will look a bit lumpy but thats fine.
  • Add the broccoli and stir well to coat in the sauce.
  • Cover the dish and bake for about 20 minutes until the broccoli is tender (test with a fork) and the sauce has thickened.
  • Stir well before serving
