  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • 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.

  • Bake in preheated oven until top is golden and cheese is bubbly, about 30 minute.

This was good! I made it a bit easier by using steam in the bag frozen veggies (I used a "CA blend" w/cauliflower carrots and broccoli). Since my version had the added green broccoli I skipped the green beans. I used a combo of shredded Mexican cheese and white cheddar needing to be used. At the end of the bake time I broiled for a few minutes to brown the cheese on top. THANKS for the recipe! Read More

As is the recipe does not call for enough milk to cover the vegetables. So I had to up the milk and the flour. I used jarred peas and green beans. Everything else was fresh. All in all it turned out pretty well. A simple recipe that can be tweaked to what is leftover in the house. Read More

I found I needed to add some chicken stock, but this is a great base recipe for veggie casserole. I plan to add shredded chicken to the leftovers and put in pastry puff shells for dinner this week! Read More

I had set my mind to make this and then realized I didn’t have any milk. I used tomatillo sauce with water for the liquid, added sour cream for the creamy texture. I always cook with extra garlic and cheese. I also used ritz crackers to top it off. I appreciate the flexibility of all the recipes on here and gives me just enough inspiration to do something original with our vegetables! Thank you! Read More
