Prepare rice, quinoa, noodles
Thinly slice the onion.
In a large skillet, sauté onion for 8-10 minutes over medium-high heat. (I use about 3 Tbsp. water/broth for no-oil sauté method, adding more as needed.)
Mince garlic and grate ginger. (I use a microplane grater for ginger.)
Cut broccoli into florets.
When the onion is translucent, add garlic, ginger, and broccoli. Stir.
Add 1/4 cup water (or vegetable broth), cover, and let broccoli steam for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Important: keep an eye on it and add more water/broth as needed to keep the pan from drying out.)
Add cashews and tamari. (Start with 2 Tbsp. tamari and add more as desired.)
Stir well and heat another 2-3 minutes or until broccoli is desired tenderness.
Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds over a warm bed of rice, quinoa, or noodles.
