“The sour cream sauce gets its name and zesty flavor from vinegar, poppy seeds, and ground red pepper. Something a little different to do with broccoli, a vegetable that seems to make often appearances on my table! I found this at a library fundraiser.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim off the leaves of the broccoli, and remove the tough ends of the stalks. I cut it into large spears. Wash broccoli thoroughly; cook in a small amount of boiling water or steam it for 8 minutes (for large stalks, less time for flowets), or until tender. Drain well. Set broccoli aside and keep warm.
  2. While the broccoli is cooking, saute the onion in butter in a medium skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly until tender. Reduce the heat to low. Stir in the sour cream and the rest of the ingredients, except cashews. Cook, stirring constantly, until thoroughly heated. Pour over the reserved broccoli and sprinkle with the cashews. Serve immediately.
