In her own words …
In 2007, I went to the Seychelles for work. The hotel I was staying in served this wonderful broccoli and cheese dish that I have never forgotten. I find broccoli very bland but the addition of cheese made it very tasty.
I liked it so much I’ve been trying to replicate it since I got back from that trip. I first tried baking it in the oven but the broccoli became too dry and bitter. What I’m looking for is for it to be a creamy, moist with cheesy crust, like a casserole. It’s not exactly as I remember yet but here is what I have so far …
3 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
2 heads of broccoli, cut and washed
2 small onions, chopped
salt and pepper
I add most of the ingredients by eye so I don’t have exact quantities for all the ingredients but I think you’ll get the idea.
And that’s it, It’s quick and easy! The flavour is great!
But I’m still looking for a way to bake it in the oven and make it a proper casserole dish without the broccoli drying and becoming bitter. If you’ve made a similar dish before with success I’d appreciate suggestions …
Thank you Mel! (^_^)
I’ve never made broccoli this way, I tasted some, it was yummy!
I could see how the broccoli might dry up in the oven though, but I have no idea how one would do it and get a nice cheesy crust. Any thoughts?
