Original recipe makes 4 Servings



BROCCOLI (8 MINS) - Rinse and cut the broccoli; slice the stem; separate the head into bite sizes florets. Steam or Microwave the stems for 2 minutes. Add the florets and cook for another 4 minutes. Drain. NOODLES (8MINS) - Soba noodles (ramen or Chuka Soba) will be cooked in a pot with plenty of boiling water. Set the water on to boil; 5 mins. Flavor the water with a Dash of a salt substitute or Perc (optional). Add the noodles and boil for 2 minutes. When the noodles come to the surface stir well several times with chopsticks or a fork to separate strands. Drain. SAUCE (8 MINS) -- In a dry skillet, warm the cashews over medium heat for 5 minutes, roasting often to prevent burning. Set aside to cool. Peel and finely mince the ginger. Chop a medium clove of garlic. Place the nuts, ginger, garlic, cilantro leaves into a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Chop, pulsing, until fine. Add soy sauce, lime juice, and vegetable oil (light olive oil). Blend, until fairly fine and starting to get creamy. Continue to blend while adding the water a little at a time through the chute, up to 1/2 cup. The noodles are absorbant. MAKES 3/4 cup of a cashew-butter. In a large serving bowl, toss the noodles with the sauce to coat. Toss with the broccoli. Serve with shredded carrot garnish and more tamari sauce; both condiments will add greater depth of flavor.
