Broccoli & Cauliflower


  • 2 large heads broccoli
  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1¾ cups milk
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 (4oz) can diced green chiles
  • ¼ tsp hot sauce


Cut vegetables into florets (you should end up with roughly 8 cups of broccoli and 4 cups of cauliflower). Bring 8 cups of salted water to a boil. Add cauliflower and boil for 2 minutes. Add broccoli and boil for 6 more minutes. Drain.

Melt butter and flour in a saucepan. Add milk, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Place vegetables in larg dish, and top with sauce.
