Re: Sauces for steamed Broccoli
Carol - here's a few ideas for you -
BASIC WHITE SAUCE AND VARIATIONS
Basic White Sauce Recipe
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup milk
1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in the flour, salt and pepper until smooth.
2. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Use immediately or refrigerate.
Cheese Sauce: Stir 1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese into 1 cup of white sauce. Heat just until cheese is melted.
Curry Sauce: Stir 1/2 teaspoon curry powder and a pinch of ground ginger into 1 cup of white sauce.
Mornay Sauce: Stir 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese, Parmesan cheese or a combination of both and a pinch of ground nutmeg into 1 cup of white sauce.
Mustard Sauce: Stir 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard into 1 cup of white sauce.
Brown Sauce: Follow recipe for a white sauce except substitute beef broth for the milk. For richer color, add a dash of browning sauce.
Veloute Sauce: French for velvety, this sauce substitutes a light-colored stock such as chicken, turkey or fish broth for the milk.
Cook 1 large bunch of broccoli; drain and arrange on a heated serving platter.
To 6 tbsp melted butter, add lemon juice to taste and 1/4 cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds. Sprinkle over the broccoli.
