  • 1 package Earthbound Farm Frozen Organic California-Style Blend
  • ½ tablespoon butter
  • ½ tablespoon unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup Lowfat milk
  • 3 tablespoons Shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese

Robust vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and carrots benefit from the gentle caress of a rich, velvety sauce. Here we call for sharp cheddar and Parmesan, but feel free to substitute Swiss, jack or even a Mexican or Italian 4-cheese blend, if you prefer.

Cook the California-Style Blend vegetables as directed on the package.

Meanwhile, heat the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the flour and cook 1 minute, stirring often. Whisk in the milk. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes.

Stir in the cheeses. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Drain the vegetables and put them into a bowl. Add the sauce and toss lightly to coat. Serve hot.

Fresh Variation:  Substitute 1 package (10 oz) frozen Earthbound Farm Organic Broccoli for the California-Style Blend. The rest of the recipe remains the same.
