Vegetable Au Gratin

Ingredients
  1. Mixed boiled vegetables - 1/2 cup (carrot, french beans, green peas and potatoes)
  2. White sauce - 3/4 cup
  3. Grated cooking cheese - 25gms
  4. Butter 1 tbsp
  5. Salt and pepper to taste
For the white sauce:
  1. White sauce - 1 cup (250ml milk, 1 tbsp flour, 10 gms grated cheese, 1 tsp butter)
White sauce: Melt the butter in a sauce pan and fry the flour in it taking care not to brown the flour. Remove from heat. Let cool and then add milk, little by little, constantly stirring to avoid formation of any lumps. Put over low heat and cook till it thickens in consistency. Remove from fire and allow it to cool. Mix the grated cheese and keep aside.

Process:

Add salt and pepper to white sauce and mix well. Add half of the grated cheese and mix further. Now add the mixed vegetables and blend. Grease a baking dish and add the mixture in it. Cover with remaining cheese and dot with butter. Bake in a hot oven (400 degree fahrenheit) for about 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
