Servings: 10


1 head of Romanesco broccoli

1 1/2 tablespoons butter

1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup whole milk

4 ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

2 tablespoons parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

Pine nuts or walnuts, optional


Melt butter over medium-low heat, stir in flour and mix well. Whisk in milk. Raise temperature to a boil, then reduce to simmer. Whisk until sauce thickens. Add both cheeses, salt and pepper, stir until smooth. Cut the Romanesco broccoli into florets. Steam or cook in a covered dish with half an inch of water, until soft. Drain. Pour hot cheese sauce over the florets and serve. Dust with crushed pine nuts or walnuts if desired.
