Cheesy Broccoli

4 from 1 review

A homemade cheese sauce made with olive oil instead of butter that’s great for drizzling over veggies.


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 11/2 Tsbp flour
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 cup milk (I used skim, 2% would also be good), room temperature
  • 4 oz cheese, grated (I used colby jack, cheddar would also be a good choice)
  • steamed broccoli or other veggies


  1. In a pan, heat olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Stir in flour and mix until combined.
  3. Slowly add milk, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
  4. Add cheese and spices and stir until melted.
  5. Reduce heat and let sauce thicken.
  6. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  7. Pour over steamed vegetables and serve immediately.
