Cheese Sauce for Vegetables

This cheese sauce is just as creamy as Velveeta but far healthier! No “cheese product” here. I have added garlic powder for a kick, but feel free to leave it out if you like.


  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 3/4 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 c. heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder


  1. In a small sauce pan, melt butter over medium heat.
  2. Add cheese and whisk constantly. When it starts to melt, add heavy cream and continue to whisk constantly.
  3. When the cheese sauce comes together, add salt, pepper, and garlic, and whisk a few times.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Pour over steamed cauliflower, broccoli, or cabbage.
