Good Veggies

A lot of people who hate vegetables have only experienced them at their worst. Broccoli for instance can be made delicious and a family favorite. The microwave is the greatest cooking invention since the pressure cooker. A covered dish with a bit of water and a stalk of broccoli will become ambrosia at the table if after cooking it, you cover it with a nice extra sharp cheddar cheese sauce.

Cook the broccoli to hot but not soft. Leave a little crunch in it.

Start with a table spoon of butter melted in a microwave dish. Add a table spoon of flour and a few shakes of salt. Stir it to make a thick paste. In that paste add a half cup of milk and microwave for a minute. Remove and stir with a whisk until it starts to thicken. Now add a bit more milk to thin to the desired consistency, reheating and whisking as you go. Leave it as a thin white sauce, and slice the cheese in thin slices. Heating and whisking again until the sauce is yellow and taste superb off your fingertip. Finish now with a touch of Dijion mustard mixed in well, pour over the cooked hot broccoli and serve. You will have no trouble cleaning up as everyone wants to use their finger to help clean the sauce bowl like kids in a cake batter.

( touch.... ) That is about just a wetting on the end of a spoon dipped in the mustard. Great with many veggies cooked to soften. Cauliflower, asparagus tips, brussel sprouts come to mind.
