Broccoli and cheese

Broccoli and cheese


1/2 cup (4 oz.) broccolini
1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

1 to 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup beer (your favorite)
1/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup cubed sharp cheddar cheese


Turn cheese spread into something spectacular by stirring in beer and serving over broccolini!


In a bowl, drizzle olive oil over broccolini and season with salt and pepper. Place broccolini on a grill and grill on high heat until leaves have begun to char and stems have softened slightly. Remove and set aside.

Meanwhile, begin heating cream in a sauce pot. In a small mixing bowl, combine beer with cornstarch. Once cream has reached a simmer, pour beer-cornstarch mixture into cream while whisking to combine. Return liquid to a simmer and mix thoroughly. Remove from heat and stir in cheese until it has fully dissolved. Season with salt to taste.

Pour a small amount of cheese fondue sauce in the bottom of a small bowl and then place broccolini on top. Pour additional fondue sauce over broccolini and enjoy!
