admin's picture
  Broccoli 1 Pound, cut into 1 inch florets with about 2 inches of stem attached
  Unsalted butter 3 Tablespoon
  All purpose flour 3 Tablespoon
  Milk 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Heavy cream 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dry mustard 1⁄4 Teaspoon, mixed with 1/2 tablespoon water
  White cheddar cheese 6 Ounce, shredded (Sharp/Mild)
  Kosher salt To Taste

1. In a large, deep saucepan, bring 1 inch of water to a boil. Fill a steamer basket with the broccoli florets, add it to the saucepan, cover and steam over high heat until the broccoli is crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Transfer the broccoli florets to a serving platter.
2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour and whisk over moderately high heat for 2 minutes. Add the milk and heavy cream and cook, whisking, until the sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Add the mustard powder mixture and shredded cheddar cheese and cook over moderately low heat, stirring, until the cheddar cheese is completely melted. Season the cheddar cheese sauce with salt, transfer to a serving bowl and serve with the steamed broccoli florets.
