Cheesy and crunchy and satisfying … yet surprisingly light.
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Add the tablespoon of olive oil into a large pan along with the minced garlic. Saute on low heat for a couple of minutes, just until the garlic softens but doesn’t brown. Mix in the flour until it’s thoroughly coated in oil, then slowly whisk in the milk. Add the nutmeg then stir in the cheddar cheese. Heat and stir until it melts. Season to taste.
Add the broccoli florets into a baking dish and pour the cheese sauce over the top. Top with the grated Parmesan.
In a small bowl, stir together the breadcrumbs and a teaspoon of olive oil and sprinkle on top of the Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the top is a light golden brown. Makes 2 to 3 generous servings.
This is a stick-to-your-ribs, warm-you-up, side dish. This is not the conventional creamed spinach recipe that calls for tons of butter and cheese, it is low-fat and delicious. What is also great about this recipe is that it is a total “pantry” dish that is a quick go-to on a busy day.
