It always is a nightmare trying to get kids to eat their vegetables. Sneak them, mash them, somehow get the in- has been my mantra.

But for some strange reason, broccoli seems effortless.

Specially when dunked in this beautiful cheese sauce. It’s yum.

I have strict orders to make this every week 🙂

  1. Stand in a colander to drain all the excess water.


For the sauce


Whisk flour and 1/4 cup milk in a small bowl until smooth.
Heat the remaining 1 /4 cup milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat until steaming.
Now whisk in the flour mixture and keep whisking on low heat  until thick. This would take 2 to 4 minutes, Don’t stop whisking.

Add cheese, salt & pepper and nutmeg. Go easy on the salt because the cheese itself can be quite salty.

Pour over broccoli and serve with warm bread.
