Broccoli & Cheddar

A classic culinary partnership takes center stage as broccoli and The World’s Best Cheddar pair up for great soups, casseroles, dips, and other delicious dishes!

Consider the humble broccoli. This modest member of the cruciferous clan, with cousins like Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage, has a low glamour factor and is often maligned, even by presidents. Who can forget George H. W. Bush’s vehement distain for the vegetable his mother made him eat as a child?

Broccoli, it seems, is the Rodney Dangerfield of veggies. It just doesn’t always get the respect it deserves, which is really a shame since it’s kind of a superhero when it comes to nutrition.  It’s a powerful source of Vitamins C an K and is loaded with fiber, potassium, and folic acid. Broccoli is affordable and can be prepared in so many tasty ways – steamed, roasted, and raw.

One of broccoli’s most felicitous preparations happens when it’s teamed with Cabot cheddar. Broccoli and cheddar just go together – like peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, or bacon and eggs. Their complimentary flavors are just made for each other.

At Cabot, we’ve put this yummy combo to work over and over again, from appetizers to entrees, and everything in between. Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy the awesomeness of broccoli and cheddar.
