Another Healthy Side Dish- Broccoli With Cheesy Sauce

Broccoli seems to be always an easy side dish for dinner. After I buy the broccoli usually at the weekend I trim the stems of and wash it and have the crowns ready to go in the fridge. That saves time during the week nights. I also found this cheaper than buying the prepped packages. Here the recipe that I adapted from the cooking light cookbook.

1 cup of no fat or low fat milk
1 tablespoonon of flour
½ fat free cheddar cheese or some other reduced fat cheddar
3 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese
½ teaspoon of Dijon mustard
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon fresh or dried thyme
Broccoli (handful of crowns per serving)- boil or steam until tender

1. Add flour in a small pot or sauce pan.Add the milk and keep stirring with a whisk. Bring to cook until bubbles.2-3 minutes.
2. Remove from heat and add cheese and remaining ingredients. Stir until smooth.
Takes less than 5 minutes and is enough sauce for 4-6 servings.
