Cheesy Broccoli And Cauliflower Florets

image.jpegThere’s so much one can do with broccoli and cauliflower.  When these vegetables are abundant where you live, like Baguio City, you sometimes take them for granted.  For sure, there are many traditional recipes that you can use them for, but once in a while, your imagination and penchant for adventure get the better of you. Which is  why I came up with this simple yet sumptuous cheesy recipe.

It’s all about the cheese, one might argue. But I disagree. It’s also about the broccoli and cauliflower.


6 broccoli florets

6 cauliflower florets

2 cups water

1 chicken bouillon

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

2-inch slice of cheese melt, cut into cubes


Boil the water in a pan. Add chicken bouillion.  Add turmeric. Reduce heat and add cauliflower and broccoli florets.  Cook until tender. Note that the broccoli will cook faster than the cauliflower.  Remove florets from the pan and set them on a plate or saucer. You can save the liquid for soup or other recipes.  Add the cheese cubes and allow to melt on top of the warm florets.  If desired, place the florets with cheese in the microwave for faster melting. Serve warm over a bed of fresh cabbage leaves.
