Servings 6


  • 3 Heads of broccoli blanched + cut into florets
  • 4 Cloves of Garlic minced
  • 1/2 Green Bell Pepper roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup Raw + Unsalted Cashews soaked in hot water for 6 mins.
  • 1 TBSP Ginger root minced
  • 1 TBSP Sesame seeds / Everything but the Bagel seasoning
  • 2 TBSP Sesame Oil


  • 4 TBSP Soy Sauce
  • 2 TBSP Your choice of sauce! (Gochujang sauce, Teriyaki, Ginger marinade, Plum sauce, etc.)
  • 1 TBSP Rice Vinegar
  • 1 TBSP Corn Starch
  • A Pinch of Sugar


  • Chop your broccoli into large florets before blanching them in boiling water for no more than 5 minutes. Immediately drain them, showering the vibrant greens in cold water. Chop into smaller florets + set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir in soy sauce, rice vinegar + your choice of marinade/dressing to taste. Mix in sugar + corn starch until fully combined. Set aside.
  • In a large/wide frypan or wok, combine sesame oil, garlic, green pepper + broccoli over high heat. Stir for a few minutes, making sure to not burn your garlic!
  • Pour your corn starch slurry into the pan, stirring constantly. Add in the cashews + ginger– reduce your heat to medium + cover your pan to let sauce thicken.
    Starting small, taste your creation. If you want more a saucier, add some splashes of soy sauce– careful as this increases salt levels!
  • Top with sesame seeds, add pepper to taste + enjoy!

I hold my childlike imagination very close to my heart, and it’s caused me to make science experiments for a living, just as I did for fun with anything I could get my hands on in my kitchen growing up. Only now, instead of Dawn detergents and Hershey’s cocoa powder, it’s butters and essential oils. It’s what lead to Sukha Seat, and to my mom finally trying my creations!

I am a lover of all arts, a try-er of all crafts, and a believer of all things.
