This is delicious anytime, but best in early summer when all the veggies are fresh from the garden! Serve with a nice salad and some crusty bread.

I made this last night, and the only difficulty I had with it was getting the milk and flour to thicken while stirring it into the vegetables. I found it far more effective to stir it separately over a low heat and then add to the vegetables after it reached the proper consistency. Also, I added a pinch of nutmeg and 2 dried bay leaves to the milk, bechamel style, which was delicious! (just be sure to remove the bay leaves from the sauce before serving) Thank you for sharing this!

A really nice thing about the 'zaar is the opportunity to learn something new. Today we made a white sauce wtihout the 'usual' preparation. Other than using veggies available we made no variation. Next time, we may add some spices to the milk. We had a really good result.
