Low Fat Cheesy Veggie Bake (Crock Pot)

"Pretty much a basic weeknight meal -- this is not gourmet, but it is warm and filling and easy to make it. If you are expecting something gourmet that will knock your socks off then please don't stop. However, this is quite tasty and filling while meatless! We will add leftover grilled chicken on top (or whatever leftover meat we have -- pork tenderloin, steak, pork chops etc). Also -- this forms a thin almost soup like sauce -- if you want it thicker then use half the soup, but we like ours thin so it really gets in the rice :) This is also really good served over baked potatoes! This is just "simple food" and it adjusts well to more or less spices depending on your personal tastes!"

  1. It was gourmet enough for me! I baked it as my new crockpot isn't coming until Santa arrives! Served with boiled potatoes, cabbage, sprouts & a vegetarian-meat. We don't have 'Healthy Request' in the UK but I used a 400g 'non-lite' soup as I don't like watery soups. It was more liquid but it was whole milk & the oven evaporated some, I don't like watery sauces anyway. Velveeta isn't sold in the UK (any more) either, the last I had was from Germany, so used my own cheese sauce this time. They sell this type of dish in fine-dining restaurants near me, not soup based or processed, but the general thing, this is great for when in a hurry & very flexible. :)
  2. This sounds like a delicious recipe and l would like to make it ! Could l use fresh vegies instead off thawed frozen ones ?
  3. Even though DH thought it was just okay, I absolutely loved it and will give it 5 stars anyway. I will make it again even if I have to eat it by myself! I made it as directed only I didn't thaw the veggies beforehand, I just tossed everything together in the crock pot and left it for around 8 hours on low. All the veggies broke up into bitty pieces and everything meshed together into one delicious soupy mixture that I served over brown rice. Yum!
  4. Love flexible recipes and this one is very flexible. Was great over whole wheat couscous (would also be very good over rice) as a side dish, but would also make a great vegetarian main dish. DH called dibs on any leftovers for his next day lunch. Made as written using the broccoli, cauliflower, and carrot mix. And used the oven bake option. Thanks for the post.
  5. For being so easy, this was just great! In addition to the frozen carrots/broccoli/cauliflower blend, I also added half a bag of frozen soy beans. Since I was adding additional veggies, I threw in half a can of water to spread the sauce a little further. Made plenty to serve three of us as a main meal with lots of leftovers. We served over steamed rice as suggested - true vegetarian comfort food!


  1. This is just like a casserole we've had for years from my mother. Instead of velveeta we use a jar of cheeze whiz. We also add seasoned bread cubes. And it is so well liked and reheats well, we always double this so everyone can have leftovers to go with their turkey or ham.
