Servings 4 servings
- 2 tablespoons butter

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté onion and broccoli until tender, about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle flour over veggies and stir to incorporate. Slowly whisk in milk and continue stirring to scrape up the brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pan.
