Brussels Sprouts with Sherry-Asiago Cream Sauce

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/brussels_sprouts_with_sherry_asiago_cream_sauce.html

From EatingWell:  October/November 2006

Can a rich cream sauce be healthy? Yes, when it's made with a little full-flavored cheese like Asiago, low-fat milk and sherry. Look for dry-to-medium sherry sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store.

4 servings, about 3/4 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place Brussels sprouts in a steamer basket and steam in a large saucepan over 1 inch of boiling water until tender, about 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring once or twice until just starting to brown, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Sprinkle in flour; stir until combined. Whisk in milk and sherry; bring to a simmer, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring often, until thickened and bubbly, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese, salt and pepper. Spoon the sauce over the sprouts.
