Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 pound broccoli, fresh, florets
    1 1/2 cups fat-free skim milk
    2 tbsp all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
    2 tsp Dijon mustard
    3/4 tsp table salt, or to taste

Directions

Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large pot. Place broccoli in a steamer basket and set over water. Cover and steam until crisp-tender, about 5 to 6 minutes; drain and return to pot. Alternately, you can cook broccoli in microwave.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, whisk together milk and flour until blended; place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes; remove from heat. Whisk in cheese until melted; whisk in mustard and salt.

Pour sauce over broccoli and toss until coated. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

Notes
This recipe is very cheesy. If you prefer your vegetables more in their natural state increase the amount of broccoli.
