I already do a Pie tutorial, so I won't bore you with a pie. I do however make a mean Mashed Cauliflower & Broccoli Casserole. Sometimes my hubby and I skip the meat and just eat this for dinner. He even loves it cold for lunch. So here we go!
Start with some lovely fresh veggies..I make a lot because it is just as easy to do that and have leftovers.
Wash the veggies, break them into florets and place in a large pot with half pot of water. Bring to a boil and cook until just tender. Do not over boil as you will be baking them also. Just soft enough to mash.
Drain and mash with big dollop of mayonnaise, 1/2 stick of butter, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese and salt & pepper to taste. I have substituted lowfat mayo and butters like Smart Balance with good results. If you are making a double batch, just increase the mixins accordingly. Really no wrong way to do this.
Place in sprayed (Pam) or buttered casserole dish and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees until golden and bubbly and you just can't stand it any longer.
You will never have a problem getting your kids to eat their veggies again. This is so good and takes hardly anytime at all. Oh my gosh.....now I'm hungry! Enjoy and I hope I 'tuted' you properly ;-)
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
