10-Minute Broccoli Cheese "Casserole"
The perfect midday meal for a busy, ravenous breastfeeding mom who needs her protein, calcium and folic acid. Ingredients 1 box Kraft instant mac ‘n’ cheese 1 head of broccoli 3 T butter a splash of milk grated cheese (optional) sour cream or plain yoghurt (optional) parmesan cheese or wheat germ Instructions In a pan, bring water to a boil. Meanwhile, rinse the broccoli and cut into florets. When the water is boiling, stir in the Kraft noodles and the broccoli florets. Boil for 6 to 8 minutes until done. Meanwhile (optionally) grate about 2 oz of cheese of your choice. Drain the noodles and broccoli. Add the Kraft seasoning packet, butter, and milk; mix thoroughly. Optionally, stir the grated cheese into the hot mixture; it should melt. At this point you can also optionally stir in 2 T sour cream or up to ½ cup plain yoghurt for a creamy texture and a slightly tart flavor. For that crunchy casserole topping, top with parmesan cheese or wheat germ (pictured). Eat immediately. Serves 1.
Masak means "to cook" in Indonesian. Since we lived for a time in Indonesia, some people wondered what we eat. This blog will help answer that question ... and perhaps inspire you with its cheap, eclectic, and ad hoc collection of recipes.
