4 servings

Topping steamed broccoli with a good-for-you cheese sauce is an easy way to entice picky eaters to eat their veggies.

ingredients

  • 1 pound broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup nonfat milk, divided
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of ground white pepper
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg (optional)

directions

Trim 1/2 inch off broccoli stalks; remove the tough outer layer with a vegetable peeler. Cut the broccoli lengthwise so the florets attached to the long stalks are 1- 2 inches wide. Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a Dutch oven fitted with a steamer basket. Steam the broccoli until tender, 5-7 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk the flour and 1/4 cup milk in a small bowl until smooth. Heat the remaining 3/4 cup milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat until steaming. Whisk in the flour mixture; cook, whisking, until thickened, 2-4 minutes. Remove from the heat; add the cheese, salt, pepper and nutmeg (if using). Drizzle over the broccoli. Serve warm.
