With the Brussels Sprouts rendition doing the rounds everywhere, a great deal of perusers have been sending in inquiring as to whether they can change the sprouts to broccoli. The entertaining thing is, this is a formula I grew up with and basically one of the main ways we adored broccoli.

She would make a white sauce without any preparation with spread and flour, and so on, however to keep us rational in a low carb world, I've adjusted the formula somewhat for gluten free and low carb devotees. Additionally, this adaptation is so a lot simpler.

Creamy Sauce ?
