Simple Casserole

I’m not sure if this food could be called gratin, since there’s no layer of grated cheese or other crust like thing on top. So I’ll just call it casserole. You can make either a main course of side dish with the recipe. If you use only broccoli, cauliflower and things like that it will be a nice side dish, but adding beans, potatoes etc. it turns into a filling dinner. You can also add frozen spinach or dried mushrooms to the sauce.

Vegetable Casserole

vegetables of your choice (potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli florets, onions, kohlrabi, zucchini, beans, chickpeas, snow peas, bell pepper…)
3 tbsp margarine
0,75 dl wheat flour
0,5 dl soy or oat milk
0,5 tsp thyme
1 tsp chervil
1 tsp parsley
salt and pepper
1 dl nutritional yeast

Cut all the vegetables in bite size chucks. Harder vegetables like potatoes, carrots and cauliflower have to be boiled first until they’re almost done, but for example bell peppers and onions can be used raw. Fill an oven proof dish with vegetables. Melt the margarine in a pot and stir in the flour. Add little milk, stir well, add more milk, stir again etc. until all the milk is in the pot. Bring to boil, stirring often, season with herbs, salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir in the nutritional yeast. Pour the sauce on the vegetables and bake in 200 Celsius degrees until it looks like ready. I always forget to look at the clock, but I think it takes about half an hour.
