Baked Broccoli with Cheese

Forget plain, steamed broccoli. Liven up this powerhouse veggie with some low-fat cheese and yogurt, and watch it disappear.


  • 1/2 lb. cauliflower
  • 1/2 lb. broccoli (or 1 lb. if not using cauliflower)
  • 1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 3/4 cup grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp. mustard
  • 2 T wheat germ
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Break the cauliflower and broccoli into florets and cook in lightly salted, boiling water for 10 minutes until just tender. Drain well and transfer to a baking dish.

Mix together the yogurt, grated cheese and mustard, then season the mixture with pepper and spoon over cauliflower and broccoli.

Sprinkle wheat germ over the top and heat in oven at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Serve hot.
