Yield
8 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup broccoli and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

Not only is broccoli a good source of folate, but it also offers plenty of vitamin K, a bit of vitamin E, and vitamin C to boost brain power. The cheeses add richness to the sauce in this comfort-food side dish.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Heat to 180° or until tiny bubbles form around edge (do not boil). Remove from heat; let stand 15 minutes. Strain milk mixture through a sieve into a bowl, reserving milk. Discard solids. Wipe pan clean with paper towels; add strained milk and flour to pan, stirring with a whisk. Return pan to medium heat; cook 2 minutes or until thick, stirring constantly with a whisk. Remove from heat. Add cheeses, salt, and pepper, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Keep warm.

Step 2

Cook broccoli in boiling water 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Top with cheese sauce; serve immediately.
