Healthy Broccoli Gratin

October 10, 2012 by Kristin

  • About 12 ounces of broccoli
  • 1 1/2 cups of nonfat milk, divided
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 cup of whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup of low fat shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard
  • dash of pepper
  1. Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
  2. Bring broccoli 1 1/4 cups milk and salt to a boil in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until the broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup cheese and oil in a small bowl. Whisk flour and the remaining 1/4 cup milk in another small bowl until smooth; stir the mixture into the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup cheese, chives, mustard and pepper. Move broccoli mixture to a casserole dish. Sprinkle with the breadcrumb mixture. Broil until the top is crispy and beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes.
