Ah yes, much better. When things get difficult, head towards simplicity. This recipe? It’s all about simplicity.
You can either Steam the broccoli or boil it for two minutes. Either way, you will want to make the Sauce CrÃ¨me first.
Note that Sauce Crème is a béchamel with heavy cream added. Fairly straightforward.
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 3 Tablespoons AP Flour
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1/2 heavy cream
- salt and pepper to taste
- juice of 1/2 lemon
Melt the butter in a sauce pan over medium/medium-low heat. Whisk flour to create a fully formed roux. Add milk, 1/2 cup at a time, mixing together slowly, ensuring a velvety texture.
Add cream in the same manner as the milk. Flavor with salt and pepper. Add lemon juice and mix well.
Spoon over freshly cooked broccoli.
