This recipe is 2 fold. As separate recipes found in my Sharp Microwave Oven Cookbook. First recipe was to teach how to cook fresh broccoli in a MW oven and the other is just called Hot Cheese Dip. For dipping with snacks like Nachos, Chips, vegetables.

I find this taste very similar to the ones served at the Kenny Roger's Roasters Restaurant in Singapore.. Razz



Ingredients
1 floret of fresh Broccoli(cut into small pieces)

Cheese dip
250g Gouda Cheese
80ml milk(I used UHT milk)
2 drops of Tabasco sauce(I omitted this as Melody doesn't like spicy stuff)

Method to cook Cheese dip
1. Put all the ingredients in a MW safe container.
2. Microwave at MED-HIGH(70%) for 5 to 6 mins till melted.
3. Remove and stir to mix evenly.

Method
1. Blanched broccoli in hot boiling water for 30 secs.
2. Remove and drain excess water.
3. Arrange on a plate.
4. Pour hot cheese dip sauce over broccoli
5. Serve immediately

Looks good! Can I find gouda cheese in NTUC?

I've tried this before, but using normal Kraft cheese. I blanched the broccoli, put the sliced cheese on top of it, and microwaved it till the cheese melted. My kids loved it!

I'll try this cheese recipe and see if they like it too. Thanks for sharing, Gina.

Melisa

i bought Gouda cheese from NTUC Thomson yesterday after my day at Polo Club(nearby mah..)

I prefer to use Gouda cheese because its mildly salted. So i don't have to add salt to blanch the broccoli.

Was thinking of using this cheese dip with Nachos..! coffee

Thanks Gina.
By the way, if I cant get Gouda cheese, can I use the one you did for the cheese fries? How does Gouda cheese look like?

Karrine

almost all the cheese looks the same. They are either in slices or in blocks or shredded. its the labelling(packaging) and the taste/smell that sets it apart. They are often in yellow or orange colour..some are very pale..off white like Feta Cheese, Mozzarella, cream cheese.

I don't know very much in detail about cheese. i only know those I used often.

Thanks Gina.
Yes, I just wanna know if this cheese is in slice or block. So it's easier for me to look out for it.

Gina, I'm just curious. You don't use a lot (if any?) cheese in Asian cooking, right?

What kind of cheeses are available in Singapoor?
I am an absolute cheese lover and wish I could introduce you ladies to the wonderful world of cheese!
Of course, you may not like them... Wink :lol:

I like it and Alannia like them, and other members... please ... I can't wait.
So far I made Feta, hard cow milk cheese and Cottage Cheese.
