Broccoli and Cauliflower Parmesan

I had some broccoli and cauliflower in my fridge that needed to be used. I wanted to do something different instead of just steaming it.  I know both of these veggies get a bad rap but if they are cooked correctly they really aren't half bad, and they are good for you too.  Try adding some to your menu soon.
Doesn't take much to create this recipe.  I bet you have most things in your pantry.
Start out by steaming the cauliflower and broccoli.  I steamed the cauliflower a little bit longer than the broccoli.  The broccoli could have been steamed a little longer too.
Put 2 Tablespoons butter in a saucepan.
Add 2 Tablespoons give or take minced onion.  Cook onion until tender.
Add 2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon or one cube.
1 1/2 cup milk.  Whisk together really well.
Layer the veggies in a baking dish.
Whisk the milk mixture until it begins to bubble.  Stirring constantly.
Remove from the heat and add 1/3  a cup of grated Parmesan cheese.
Pour sauce over the veggies.
Make sure it is all covered.
Add some additional grated Parm to the top.
Add some paprika on top. Place in an oven on broil.  Leave it until the cheese is melted and bubbly.  Watch carefully.
Fresh from the oven all hot and bubbly.
