While we all know that steamed vegetables are the healthiest way to eat them (aside from raw), sometimes it gets a little boring, you know? For those days when I want more flavor, I make my veggie casserole dish for the family. Bonus: It's a pretty healthy recipe.

Vegetable Casserole Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

Veggies:

2 cups broccoli
2 cups cauliflower
1 ½ cup sliced carrots
1 cup sliced mushrooms

And:
1 cup grated cheese
1 box seasoned croutons – crushed

Sauce:

2 eggs
½ cup mayo (or Miracle Whip) (Use low fat to be “healthy”)
1 onion, finely chopped
1 can cream of mushroom or chicken soup (I use the low fat variety)
½ of the cheese

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350. Steam veggies for 5 minutes – drain. Put in casserole dish. Beat eggs, and add rest of the sauce ingredients. Pour over vegetables. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese and add croutons*

Bake 20 minutes covered, and 20 minutes uncovered.

* In place of store-bought croutons, I usually take whole wheat bread and crumble with a chopper. They are softer and healthier as well.

How do you dress up your vegetables?

Oh and I usually just add olive oil and a little salt and pepper to our vegetables.
