"Creamed" Broccoli and Potatoes
1 bunch fresh or 2 10-ounce packages frozen broccoli
16 small new potatoes
3 cups soy milk or skim milk
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
8 scallions, chopped
Wash, trim, and slice broccoli stems. Leave florets whole. Steam fresh
broccoli until tender, 3-5 minutes. Or cook frozen broccoli according to
package directions; drain.
Scrub potatoes, trim defects, but don't peel. Boil in separate container
until tender, about 10 minutes; drain.
Heat 2 cups of the soy milk in saucepan until scalded but not boiling
Meanwhile, combine remaining cold milk with flour and seasonings in a jar.
Cover and shake well to blend (or whip in a bowl with a whisk). Strain into
the hot milk, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick
and bubbling. Simmer over low heat 3 to 5 minutes, stirring often, to cook
Gently stir in the broccoli, potatoes, and scallions.
