BAKED VEGGIES


Recipe Source & Acknowledgement: Homely Food
Today, I am going to present a healthy and tasty baked dish with simple vegetables (veggies are absolutely your choice). Baked veggies are so yummy and filling, simple yet fabulous. This is especially delicious in Wintertime, when we always crave warmer foods. You may serve it as a party or potluck dish too.....

INGREDIENTS:
5-6 Florets of Cauliflower
1 Medium Potato, Cut Into Medium Cubes
1/3 Cup Sweet Corns (frozen)
1/3 Cup Green Peas (frozen)
3 tbsps Chopped Red Bell Pepper
3 tbsps Chopped Green Bell Pepper
1/2 of a Medium Carrot, Cut Into 1/2" thick cubes
2 tbsps chopped Parsley Leaves
3 Processed Cheese Cubes, Grated (I used Amul cheese cubes)
1 tbsp Butter
Salt to taste
Black Pepper Powder to taste
1/2 tsp Chilli Flakes

FOR WHITE SAUCE:
1&1/2 Cup Milk
2 tbsps Butter
2 tbsps All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Sugar
A pinch of Nutmeg Powder
Salt and Black Pepper Powder to taste

METHOD:

Boil potato, cauliflower, sweet corn, carrot and peas for 10 minutes. 

Drain water completely and set aside.

TO MAKE WHITE SAUCE:
Take butter in a microoven safe bowl. Micro at 100% MW power for 30 seconds.

Mix all purpose flour in it. Fold nicely. Micro at 100% MW power for 1 minute.

Pour milk, sugar, salt, nutmeg powder and pepper powder in it now. Beat well, so that no lumps are formed.

Microwave the sauce for 3 minutes at 100% MW power or till it thickens. (Alternatively you can make it on stove top too)

HOW TO PROCEED:
Add boiled mixed vegetables, chopped green bell peppers and chopped red bell peppers to the prepared sauce.

Add 2 tbsps grated cheese in it.

Mix black pepper powder, chilli flakes and adjust salt now. Fold nicely. Grease a baking tray, pour veggies mixture on it.

Add parsley leaves in it.

Sprinkle the remaining grated cheese and dot with butter on the top.

Preheat oven at 200 C. Bake it for 12 minutes or till cheese melts and turns golden.

Serve hot with brown bread.
