Years ago as a teenager, My sister would eat a broccoli, cheese, pasta concoction that came out of a packet. It was alien green and had a consistency that one should always question in food. This stuff was completely terrible but completely moorish at the same time.
I had some strange craving for that space food today so got to work with what I had – half a bag of frozen broccoli and peas, some deliciously strong cheddar and a few store cupboard basics. It wasn’t actually the pasta bit that I was craving (shock), it was the marriage-made-in-heaven that is strong, hard cheese and broccoli. I suggest using the most mature cheddar you can get your hands on. A teaspoon of mustard won’t go amiss either, as it will cut through the cheesiness and lift the whole thing to even greater heights.
I always have bags of frozen veggies in the freezer as they’re great for soups, stir fries and dishes like this when unbeknownst cravings hit you.
