Velveeta Cheese Sauce For Veggies

This is a very basic cheese sauce to add some bam to relatively bland vegetables. Cauliflower comes to mind!

  • 4 oz. Velveeta cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 T. flour
  • Freshly cracked black pepper (optional).
  • Paprika (optional)

  1. Put cheese and milk in a small saucepan. Heat on the stove, covered, at just above the lowest setting. This should give you a slow melt with no danger of scorching. (On my electric range, the lowest setting is "LO". The next marked setting is "2". I set the heat between "LO" and "2".)
  2. After the cheese has melted (20+ minutes), and your vegetable dish is ready to serve, add the flour and raise heat to medium high.
  3. Whisk continually until sauce bubbles and thickens.
  4. Remove from heat and spoon onto your hot vegetable dish.
  5. For taste and presentation, I like to grind some black pepper on top of the veggies.
  6. Alternatively, a sprinkle of paprika will do wonders for the presentation.
Yield: Sauce for 2 servings of vegetables
