Number of Servings: 6
1 pound fresh or frozen broccoli
1 tablespoon margarine
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup nonfat milk
1 cup shredded 2% cheddar cheese
Substitute any vegetable/cheese combination you like.
Breifly cook the fresh or frozen broccoli. While the broccoli is cooking, melt the margarine in a 2-quart saucepan. Stir in the flour, salt and pepper. Let it bubble a little bit to sort of toast the flour. Whisk in the milk (may need a little more). Cook and stir the sauce over medium heat until it boils. Allow it to boil for a whole minute. Add the cheese and stir until it melts. Add the drained cooked broccoli. Stir it up and heat through.
