Steamed Broccoli with Beer Cheese Sauce
- 4 cups broccoli florets
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- 1/2 cup beer, separated
- 1 1/2 tbsp. flour
- 3/4 cup milk
- 3/4 cup shredded cheese of choice (I used smoked gouda)
- salt and pepper to taste
Meanwhile, make the beer cheese sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup beer with the flour. Heat the remaining beer and the milk in a medium saucepan until it comes to a boil, watch it carefully so that it doesn't overflow. Lower heat to simmer and add in the beer/flour mixture.Whisk until the mixture thickens, about 2-3 minutes. Add in the cheese, salt, and pepper. Whisk until the cheese melts.
To plate, place the quinoa down onto a plate or bowl and top with the steamed broccoli. Pour the beer cheese sauce over the top or serve on the side for dipping.
