A simple & quick vegetarian meal

During the month of Purtassi, one tends to run out of ideas for Vegetarian meals.As I child,mum always cooked vegetable curries and it made the month long fast even longer.Besides longer it became so boring.
Since I have started cooking and reading recipe books, I am always keen to experiment and try out new dishes.I love fusion cooking and bring my own twist to Western dishes.
Last week,I prepared this very simple dish and it was a hit with the family.One of the keys to cooking is always a well stocked cupboard and freezer of staple ingredients.My staples include tinned tomatoes , pasta, dried gnoochi, spices, frozen veg and Frys Soya Vegetarian products.
Veg and Potato Bake
Ingredients
Serves 6
1kg frozen mix veg (roasting veg mix)
2 potatoes sliced ( cutting down on carbs try sweet potato instead)
1packet of Cuppa Soup -Country veg variety
3 Tablespoons butter or margarine
2 Tablespoons cake flour
600ml milk
salt and pepper to taste
grated cheese to garnish
Method

  1. pan fry mix veg with 1 Tablespoon butter for about 10minutes dont overcook as it still has to bake in the oven.
  2. In a saucepan melt the remaining butter, once melted add the flour and whisk well.Mix for about 2 minutes before adding the milk before and whisk well to prevent lumps.
  3. Add the packet of soup mix and continue mixing.Keep stirring until the sauce thickens and then remove from heat.
  4. In an oven proof dish put in the cooked mix veg , place the sliced potato throughout the dish between the veg.
  5. Pour the sauce over the veg and potato mix.Sprinkle grated cheese and bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the oven.
  6. While this is baking, pan fry the Frys Schniztels.

And just like that dinner is done.This bake can be served as a side dish or a main meal.
Serving suggestions

  1. add a green salad
  2. garlic bread

What simple dishes do your family enjoy?
Bon Appetite!
