EVERY DAY: AN EASY – FAST – AND CHEAP – RECIPE THAT SUITS EVERYONE
Here we are with another recipe suitable for this season and that I really like: broccoli au gratin.
Actually, I usually steam them and add them to the pasta so as not to lose its nutritional properties and I prepare this recipe when I want them a little more tasty dish.
BROCCOLI AU GRATIN
Ingredients for 4 people: 800 g broccoli – 50 g grated Parmesan – 50 g breadcrumbs – salt. For the béchamel sauce: 1 l whole milk – 100 g butter – 100 g di flour – nutmeg – salt
Start by preparing the béchamel sauce:
Pour the milk into a saucepan and bring it to a boil.
Separately, in a pan, melt the butter and then add the flour; mix with a hand whisk and let thicken for a few minutes.
When the milk is boiling turn off the heat and pour the cream obtained by mixing the flour and butter.
Mix very well with a whip trying to avoid the formation of lumps.
Put on the heat, then salt and flavored with a little nutmeg.
Cook, without stopping stirring, until boiling, so as to thicken the béchamel sauce and get the desired consistency.
Now that your béchamel sauce is ready, you can switch to cooking broccoli:
Clean the broccoli by separating the stem from the florets and rinse thoroughly. Blanch them in a pot for 3-4 minutes and then drain.
Spread a layer of béchamel sauce on the bottom of a baking dish, add the broccoli and cover with the remaining béchamel sauce.
Cover with Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper and bake in the oven at 200 º C. for 30 minutes.
Enjoy your meal!
