broc ‘n’ cheese

by caroline

I was getting ready to make macaroni and cheese for dinner last night when I spotted a head of broccoli in the back of the refrigerator. I had been meaning to use it throughout the week, but somehow forgot about it between being busy and … well, it making its way to the back of the fridge. And then I had an epiphany. What if I used some of the leftover cheese from the macaroni dish I was about to make and created something similar, but, in lieu of noodles, I would use broccoli? And that’s how broc ‘n’ cheese was born. I’m a big fan of broccoli and cheese soup, so this dish was a hit with me from the get-go. Once I actually had a bite of it, I knew I was right — it was true love. I topped this dish with a quinoa flakes crumb mixture and it gave it a nice bit of crispiness. And how great is it that this recipe subs your typical pasta with a healthier option? Can’t get enough of it …


This recipe was a hit in our casa! And it’s a great option for a side dish. I am thinking next time I am going to try making it vegan. I think the cheese and milk could be easily swapped for dairy free options. Eat up! ♥
