2 heads of fresh broccoli
1 cup coarse ground cornmeal
1 cup water
2 1/2 cups whole milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated


1. Wash and trim the broccoli heads. Roughly chop the florets and stalks, you should end up with roughly 12 ounces of chopped florets and stalks. Add the broccoli to a food processor and pulse until very finely chopped.

2. In a medium saucepan bring the water, milk, salt, and pepper to a boil over high heat.

3. Immediately reduce heat to low and stir in the cornmeal. Cook, stirring often, about 5 minutes.

4. Stir in the broccoli and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 more minutes.

4. Take off the heat and stir in the cheese until melted.

5. Serve.
