Cast your vote for Vegetable Supreme

With the holiday’s fast approaching, we are all looking for quick easy delicious side dish recipes to serve with the Turkey or Ham. This dish is very easy to assemble, and tastes better if assembled early in the day and baked right before serving. It can be made with fresh broccoli and cauliflower as well, but they would need to be blanched before use. Why not take the short cut of using frozen vegetables. These vegetables are picked at their peak freshness and quickly frozen to preserve the vitamins. The dish looks very festive with the green from the broccoli and white cauliflower, and flecks of red from the pepper. Research shows that consuming cruciferous vegetables (the super food!) can cut the risk of cancer too!

      This is really very good. I have made this recipe but not for years. When i lived in South Dakota we would get together for a lot of pot luck suppers and a friend brought this. Of course it was a hit and everyone wanted the recipe.

      Thank you for reminding me. I may just have to put it on our Thanksgiving table this year.
