  1. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add cauliflower and carrots, cover, and steam until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir flour into butter to make a smooth mixture; cook for 1 minute. Stir milk, sugar, salt, and black pepper into the flour mixture; continue cooking and stirring until the sauce thickens, 2 to 3 minutes. Fold cauliflower, carrots, peas, onion, green beans, green bell pepper, and garlic into the sauce to coat. Mix 1 cup Cheddar cheese into the vegetable mixture. Transfer the mixture to a 2 1/2-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining Cheddar cheese over the dish.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until top is golden and cheese is bubbly, about 30 minute.

I wasn't happy with this dish. Others might like it. I am definitely a vegetable lover, but I won't be doing this recipe again.

I prepared the casserole for a dinner for eight. It was delicious. The men commented on how much they liked it. I plan to serve it at Thanksgiving.

I made it, very easy to put together and it Turned out great! I added crumpled corn Chex with drizzled butter to the cheddar cheese topping. This recipe is so easy, and a great way to spice up...

This was very good. I too used the steam in bag CA mix (super Easy) I omitted the green pepper and beans. I served this with salad and soup for a nice weeknight meatless meal. Yummy.
