Cauliflower and Broccoli with a Gruyere Sauce

Gruyere cheese is one of my favorite cheeses so when I came across this recipe on internet I had to make it. I added broccoli to the mix, it was for cauliflower only so I adjusted the  quantities in the sauce. Recipe courtesy  of Eatingwell.com.

8 cups of bite size cauliflower florets, (about 1 head)

4 teaspoons all purpose flower

1 cup 1% milk, divided

1/2 cup shredded Gruyere cheese or 2 ounces

1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives or parsley

1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic or 1 clove, I love garlic so I added more and I simmered it with the milk

1/4 teaspoon salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Steam or boil the vegetables till tender 8 to 10 minutes.

Add the flour mixture. cook whisking till the sauce bubbles and thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Off heat add the cheese, chives or parsley, garlic and salt and pepper. Spoon over the cauliflower and serve.
