Steamed Broccoli with Cheddar Cheese Sauce

Jessica Braider
If you've got broccoli skeptics in your house, this is the recipe that changed my mind when I was a kid and also my son's when he was younger.
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 15 mins
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients
  

  • 2 heads broccoli cut into spears, or use frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup low fat milk (or use any variety)

Instructions
 

  • Steam the broccoli in 1-inch of simmering water for 8 - 10 minutes, to desired tenderness. About 2 minutes before the broccoli is done, combine the cheese and milk in a small microwave-safe bowl. Loosely cover the bowl and cook it on high power for 1 minute.
  • Stir the cheese sauce, and if it’s not smooth yet, cook it for 20 – 30 more seconds, until it is smooth.
  • Drain the broccoli and drizzle it with the cheese sauce. Serve immediately.
