Cheesy Vegetable Bake

This is such a quick dish and yummy served as a side dish on Red, Green or Extra Easy day.


I basically just added a variety of frozen veg – broccoli, carrots and cauliflower (you can use fresh, but would need to blanch in some water first) to a oven proof dish. Pour over a little bit of chicken stock, just so the bake isn’t too dry.

Top with a HEa portion (42g) of reduced fat cheddar cheese per person and then sprinkle with some black pepper. Bake in the oven at 200c or 400f till cheese on top is melted and golden. It doesn’t take very long at all. 20 mins maximum.

You can easily experiment with different vegetables or even add some meat etc to make it into a meal on it’s own.

    Absolutely lovely!

    I had some fresh vegetables left; Broccoli, carrots, courgettes and blanch it as you said and it was lovely!

    Thank you! 😀

    btw… when I do Cauliflower cheese, after the sauce goes on, I put cherry tomatoes (cut in two) and raw onions (not to much) and scatter this around the dish and than put it in the oven.

    I got that from the SW magazine somewhere in 2005/7. So simple, but the taste is just that little extra!

    Take care,
