1. Cooking and baking are both physical and mental therapy.

—Mary Berry

2. If baking is any labor at all, it’s a labor of love. A love that gets passed from generation to generation.

— Regina Brett

Delicious baked vegetables, with cheese toppings

Cooking for the family, is an expression of love for them. I have always found cooking to be therapeutic. Cooking for your loved ones, doubles the pleasure, when you see their happy and excited faces, at the dining table. Remember to be precise and patient while cooking, and do not forget to mix your immense love in your recipes, to make them incredibly delicious.

Weekends are special, because everyone enjoys the short break, from their busy schedules. Therefore, I love to make the weekends more special by making some delicious food or the family favourite dishes.

My children are health and fitness conscious and thus I need to prepare something, which is light, healthy and nutritious but not too fattening.

Sharing one such recipe here, which is healthy, nutritious and easy to make. This can be enjoyed with sandwiches or noodles or fried rice or pizza or Naans. It’s completely your preference, how you want to enjoy it. But the baked veggies taste best, fresh and hot, straight out of the oven.

Instructions, for Baked Vegetables With Cheese Toppings

  1. Assemble all the above mentioned ingredients. The vegetable choices may vary, according to the availability at your place. Seasonal vegetables, such as green peas, French beans, cabbage and others can be added.
  2. Clean, cut, boil and sieve the vegetables, such as the cauliflower, carrots, corn etc. No need to boil the capsicums and mushrooms.
  3. To prepare the White sauce, add butter to a hot pan. Then add milk and corn flour mixture. Stir continuously, so that the lumps do not form. It will take about 2 to 3 minutes, to thicken the sauce. Keep the heat from low to medium, but not high. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Take an oven proof bowl. Mix all the ingredients along with the white sauce. Cover with cheese slices or grated cheese cubes. Place in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius (392 degree Fahrenheit), for 20 to 30 minutes. Adjust the temperature according to your oven. Keep checking the dish in between. The cheese on top should melt and should resemble golden brown colour. Take it out and enjoy when it is still hot.

Some Tips and Suggestions:

  • Always use fresh vegetables for baked veggies recipe. Frozen vegetables may release too much moisture, if baked on high temperature. As such, the results may not be as delicious as mentinned above.
  • While making the white sauce, mix the corn flour in cold milk thoroughly, so that there are no lumps. While cooking the white sauce, continuous stirring is required, till it thickens, otherwise the sauce will stick to the pan, or may even get burnt.
  • Baking ovens or microwave temperature settings, may be different. Please choose the temperature settings accordingly.
  • Some vegetables may not be available at your location. You can always opt for alternative choices.
  • In this recipe, I have used Borosil glassware, oven proof bowl, for baking here. Because I like to see through, when the dish is being baked. Makes it easy to check the baking process. Any other oven proof cookware can be used as well.
  • If you find the consistency of the white sauce too thick, you may add more milk to make it free flowing or as you may prefer.

      Thank you Dana Tate, for your kind visit and comments!

      You can add non-vegetarian food of your choice, such as fish pieces, chicken pieces, prawns and others. You may have to boil or half cook them, before mixing them with the while sauce mixture, to be baked. We do take non-vegetarian food as well and this recipe tastes delicious, even with those ingredients.

      Thanks for your valuable feedback! Good day to you!

      You continue to be good at photography. As a vegetarian this dish would suit me. In fact, when I cook, I mix lots of things together. The cheese idea is great for flavouring, perhaps with some special spices added. I'll be returning to cooking soon and will try it sometime. A simple dish. Thanks my Didi Ji. salaam!

      Thank you Frances Metcalfe, for your wonderful comments!

      You mentioned right, that this dish can be made with some non vegetarian ingredients as well, such as chicken cubes, prawns, eggs etc.

      I have seen Marcus Wareing in some Television shows and admire his cooking.

      Yes, cheese slices or cubes are very convenient to use and are delicious indeed.

      Thanks for sharing your valuable comments!

      We did something similar this week as one of our vegetarian options - we alternate meat and vegetarian dishes on a daily basis - and put cheese scones on top. It was a Marcus Wareing recipe, I think he has 2 Michelin stars, but I think I'd keep the scones separate next time! Anyway cheese is always tasty.
