Broccoli gratin

ingredients

serves 4
900 g (2 lb) broccoli florets
50 g (2 oz) butter
2 onions, chopped
50 g (2 oz) plain flour
600 ml (1 pt) milk
200 g (8 oz) mozzarella cheese, cubed
100 g (4 oz) blue cheese, crumbled
2 red peppers, halved, seeded and sliced
salt and pepper
100 g (4 oz) Cheddar cheese, grated

method

1. Preheat oven 200°C/400°F/gas 6. Put broccoli in a pan of lightly salted boiling water and cook until just tender, about 10 mins.

2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan, add onion and cook for 3 - 4 mins until softened

3. Stir in flour, remove from heat and gradually add the milk, stirring until blended.

4. Bring to the boil, stirring continuously until thickened. Stir in the mozzarella, blue cheese, red pepper and seasoning. Add broccoli and stir well to coat.

5. Divide between four individual dishes, top with grated cheese and place in a preheated oven for 10 -15 mins.

If you have a steamer, use it to cook the broccoli. Steamed vegetables have a better flavour and are more nutritious.
