Cauliflower and Broccoli Mornay

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ImPat

DH requested a change from steaming the broccoli and cauliflower and suggested a cheese sauce. The following is what was created. As I didn't measure the ingredients except for the milk for the cheese sauce I have approximated what I used. When making sauce use a whisk. UPDATE - please feel free to incorporate other vegies we have included carrot and or mushrooms and if wanting a one pot meal some cooked shredded chicken also goes well.

This is a very easy, quick to prepare and lovely tasting recipe for baked cauliflower and broccoli! I added in some carrots just cause I needed to use them up and that was a nice speck of colour in the mix. I loved the fresh taste of the veggies paired with the decadent cheese sauce. Mmmmm! Next time I would like to season the sauce a tad more, though. Maybe with some fresh herbs and a little nutmeg or black pepper. A real keeper, THANK YOU for sharing this with us, Pat!
