Broccoli With Cheese Sauce
This side dish is so decadent and delicious, it’s hard to believe how super simple it is to make.
Broccoli and cheese make an unbeatable combination, but this yummy creamy cheese sauce would also be delicious with other veggies, like cauliflower and carrots.
I got this awesome cheese sauce recipe from @allrecipes.
2 heads broccoli
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp all-purpose flour (use cassava flour for a gluten-free option, but disclaimer - I have not tried this myself)
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese of choice
Salt and pepper
Cut the broccoli heads into large florets. Peel the broccoli stalks and cut into chunks as well.
Steam broccoli until it is cooked to your liking. I like mine quite soft.
In a small saucepan on medium heat, melt the butter. Add flour and stir with a whisk until dissolved. Add the milk and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens. This takes a minute or two. Add cheese and mix well until cheese is melted. Turn off heat, taste, and add salt and pepper if necessary.
Serve immediately. I like to put a big dollop of cheese sauce on top of my broccoli. Enjoy!
