Think you hate veggies? These tips could change your mind

3-Cheese Sauce

Drizzle this creamy sauce over steamed or micro-cooked veggies for a tasty change of pace.

2 tablespoons of flour
1 1/4 cups of low-fat milk or fat-free half-and-half
2 ounces of part-skim Jarlsberg (or reduced-fat Swiss) cheese, grated
2 1/2 ounces of reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon of pepper

  • In a small saucepan, blend flour with 2 tablespoons of the milk or half-and-half to form a smooth paste. Using a wire whisk, slowly blend in remaining milk until smooth. Simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  • Reduce heat and add cheeses, garlic powder, and pepper. Stir until well blended and cheese has melted.
  • Remove from heat and use as desired.
