"I cooked the broccoli separately in a small amount of water, heated the other ingredients except for the flour and one cup of water (and cheeses), and when the broccoli was tender, I combined it all, brought it to a boil, and turned it off and added cheeses. (I didn't add nutmeg.) My family all really enjoyed it."

"Tried this recipe because my sister loves making it.... and it is incredible! I only used 3 cups skim milk and pureed it before eating, it was so delicious and the broccoli taste was really fresh."

"This needed a whole new approach to make it edible. After you cook the broccoli dump the water. Make a roux on the side with 1/2 cup butter and other ingredients.(omit the water, just milk and spices) Remove from heat and add broccoli to roux, cheese to all. As written it's really bad."
