Roasted Broccoli with Cheeze Sauce

There are many, many, many, many, many (get my point?), many dairy-free cheese sauces out there.  So why am I throwing another one out there?  The thing about most of the recipes out there is they either have flour, nuts, or tomatoes in them; each something that at least one of my family members is allergic to.   There are also sauces with dairy-free cheeses, but those can get pricy, and unhealthy.  

So, in short, I wanted to create a recipe that all of my family members can have, and one that is a little more healthy.

Roasting the broccoli is nice for a change, lending a slightly different flavor and texture.  I like this recipe because you can make the sauce while the broccoli is cooking making it a quick recipe, so I decided to enter it in the So Delicious Fast and Fresh Dairy-Free Time Trials Contest.   I actually did this one with a stopwatch and was able to get it done (trimming broccoli included) in 13’22”.
