A different version of strudel! This phyllo pastry envelopes a cheese and vegetable mixture! I've always loved broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce, and this recipe takes it to another dimension. Feel free to add more garlic or spice if so inclined! Keep the phyllo covered with a slightly damp towel until you are ready for it to keep it from getting brittle! Originally written by Bethe Pilch from Encino, CA.

We all really enjoyed this (well everyone but Mr. Picky, but he wouldn't even try it, so he doesn't count). I used 3.5 cups of a frozen mix of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots that I defrosted and chopped. I also sauteed some chopped onion w/ the garlic in a little olive oil and added that to the chopped veggies. Left out the tarragon b/c I didn't have any, and I used olive oil instead of butter for health reasons. I ended up making two smaller strudels from the filling, and baked them for 25 minutes. It went nicely with a roasted chicken, but would easily stand alone as a vegetarian main course.

Absolutely loved it! I sauteed chopped onion , celery and red bell pepper to add to the veggie mixture. I also sprinkled bread crumbs on top of the butter between each layer of phyllo. Took this with a salad to a friend for a "new baby in the house" meal and they loved it!

This was a great veggie strudel. I used frozen veggies that I pulsed in my food processor but followed the recipe otherwise.
