Servings: 1
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 slice white American cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Rinse off the sweet potato and prick all over with a fork.
  2. Place the wire insert in the pot so that the potato isn't touching the water. Pour in a cup of water.
  3. Place the cut broccoli in a steamer basket and sprinkle with a little salt. Place it on the potato.
  4. This is where I need help...I cooked it on high for 6 minutes. The broccoli was done but the potato was no where near done.
  5. Took the broccoli out and put the potato back in for another 9 minutes. Still not done. Another 9 minutes. Still not done. Microwaved it for 3 minutes.
  6. While the stupid potato was "cooking" I made the cheese sauce.
  7. Melt the butter, add the flour, whisk until no lumps. Add the milk, keep whisking until the sauce is all incorporated. Break up the cheese and drop into the sauce. Stir until it's combined. It would normally be done but because of the potato debacle, I had to take it off the heat and reheat it with the now cold broccoli.
  8. Scoop out the potato guts and place in bowl, mash up a little. Add the broccoli cheese sauce.
  • Made this October 2, 2020. Once that freaking potato cooked, it was delicious. I made it again a few days later, using a slice of yellow Kraft American cheese and it was also very good.
