    1 1/2  pounds        fresh brocolli (* see note) -- cut into 2 pieces
      1/4  cup           water
    1      cup           fresh mushrooms -- sliced
    2      tablespoons   butter or margarine
    2      tablespoons   all-purpose flour

 3. Pour sauce over brocolli.  Sprinkle with grated cheese.  Microwave
