Broccoli is one of our favorite vegetables. We usually steam it with a little butter and salt. But if I want to take it up a notch I will make it with other vegetables such as cauliflower and broccoli in cheese sauce.
This dish is very versatile. For this recipe, I added cauliflower. Other times I will include sliced carrots.
Gouda Cheese Sauce
Adding cheese to vegetables always makes them special, but I love smoked Gouda cheese. It adds an extra depth to the sauce.
Making a cheese sauce is a cinch with ingredients you have on hand.
Start with sauteing onion until tender.
I often make a homemade soup base, but when I am in a pinch for time, then I add a canned soup base. This recipe works well with cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, or even cream of celery soup bases. Then add your choice of cheese, milk, and basil, or other spice.
Heat and stir until the cheese melts and you are ready to add the vegetables. How simple is that?
Add buttered bread crumbs and heat through in the oven. Your cauliflower and broccoli in cheese sauce dish will be a hit.
