Sometimes you just need a little cheese!

The other night I made some yummy pork and then steamed up some broccoli.  I wanted to have something a little yummier then just broccoli (we've been eating it a lot lately).  I looked up cheese sauce, I wanted the version my mom use to make but I didn't want to weigh in to include cheese sauce!  I hit up weight watcher recipes and found this Broccoli with Cheese Sauce

  • 1 lb fresh broccoli florets 
  • 1 1/2 cups nonfat milk 
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (I used Whole Wheat Flour)
  • 3/4 cup low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded 
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (to taste)

Directions: 1 Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large pot. 2 Place broccoli in a steamer basket and set over water. 3 Cover and steam until crisp-tender, about 5 to 6 minutes; drain and return to pot. 4 Alternatively, you can cook broccoli in microwave. 5 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. 6 Pour sauce over broccoli and toss until coated. 7 Yields about 1 cup per serving.
Mine looked a little odd since I used a whole wheat flour but it still tasted yummy!!

Yummy I promise no one will know the difference between the full fat and this light fat version!


  1. YUM...I am not eating cheese (dairy) this month and I'm totally craving it!

  2. That is the only way I like broccoli, with cheese sauce. Your recipe sounds delicious!

  3. That looks good because sometimes broccoli can get a little boring without another flavor.

  4. I have been cheese obsessed this week, not great for a 'Weight Watcher' this looks totally scrum and will be on plate sometime in the near future. xxx
