Ingredients

  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) Keller’s Creamery Salted Butter, divided
  • 1 red pepper cleaned and sliced into matchstick-thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 to 1 and 1/2 pounds fresh broccoli cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup salted cashews

Instructions

  • In a medium saucepan, melt 6 tablespoons of the butter.
  • Add the red pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • While the butter sauce is simmering, boil water in a large pot. Blanch the broccoli pieces by placing them in the boiling water for 1-2 minutes, until cooked to a tender-crisp texture.
  • Drain the water and set the broccoli aside.
  • After the 20 minutes of simmering, add the remaining butter and the cashews to the saucepan. Stir until the additional butter is melted, and the cashews are coated.
  • Pour the red pepper garlic butter sauce over the broccoli pieces, and serve immediately.
