Broccoli Souffle

1 lb. broccoli, chopped and steamed
2 Tbsp. butter
1/2 an onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. flour
1 1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. salt
black pepper to taste
dash or two of coriander
1 1/2 c. cheddar cheese, grated
4 eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Grease a baking dish. Add the steamed broccoli to the dish. Set aside.

Melt the butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion, and saute about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, and saute 30 seconds longer. Add in the flour, and stir around about 1 minute.

Pour in the milk. Let it simmer on medium heat for a minute or two. Make sure it starts to bubble a little, as this will make it thicken. Just don't let it boil. When it starts to bubble, turn down the heat just a little and let it simmer, stirring occasionally. Add in the salt, pepper, and coriander.

When the sauce has thickened, add in the cheese, and stir until melted.

Add a little of the cheese sauce to the beaten eggs to temper them (like 1/2 a cup), then pour the egg mixture into the cheese sauce.

Pour over the broccoli. Bake for 30-40 minute or until the middle is set.

Serve hot. I added a bit of Sriracha sauce to mine.
