Easy Broccoli Cauliflower Cheese
This is a super simple snack or side dish that can be whipped up in the microwave in less than ten minutes. If you love Broccoli, Cauliflower and Cheese you will love this dish. If you keep broccoli and cauliflower chopped up for snacking, this is a great way to finish up the bag or grab as a late night snack.
1 cup chopped broccoli florets
1 cup chopped cauliflower florets
2-3 ounces cheese (I like Velveeta, but shredded will work)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1. Place 1/2 inch water in a microwavable bowl (with lid)
2. Add broccoli and cauliflower (salt and pepper)
3. Cover and microwave for 4 minutes, check for tenderness, cook 1 more minute if needed
4. Drain off water and return to bowl
5. Mix in cheese and microwave on 30 second shots until cheese is melted
Try serving it:
Smashed up and spread on crackers
Smashed up and placed on celery sticks

I have been using this recipe for years and we love it and now they have velveta in different flavors and it also makes great broccoli and cheese, you can also add bacon bits to this and it really adds to the flavor, thank you for reviewing and it does work to get your child to eat more veggies.

The best – and really only – way to eat broccoli and cauliflower is with cheese. I love how easy this is. Doing it in the microwave is fast and simple. Plus, you can use whatever cheese you have on hand.

That is what I call comfort food!!
rebeka deleon says
i think if i made it like this more often, my kids would eat more of it! they do like broccoli though. i just think the melty cheese would make it taste better for them and gives calcium at the same time.
That is the only way I can eat vegetables. Smothered in cheese sauce. Thanks for the recipe.
Susan Broughton says
This sounds like a really good recipe. It is short and sweet easy to do and probably tastes better than the recipes that have a ton of ingredients and a dozen steps.lol thanks for the recipe I will definitely give it a try.
Great idea about using it as a spread!
