Cheesy, golden crusty,and full of veggies-doesn't that sound wonderful ? It is a creamy surprise every bite !
My daughter loves cheesy potato casserole and when I spotted a recipe with cabbages and carrots in the cheesy dish, I decided to make the same for a good afternoon lunch. The recipe is from the book Simply Vegetarian and is a gift from Valarmathi in her recent giveaway. This is a perfect Christmassy festive Menu and a sure kid pleaser :)
Cook the potato and mash until smooth. I pressure cooked the same. Alternately you can cook it in a deep bottomed dish until softened. Beat with milk and half the butter. Season it with salt & pepper. Mash again
Boil water with little salt in 2 different bowls and cook the cabbage and carrots separately. Drain well. Combine the cabbage with potatoes and let it become a smoothy mash. Melt the remaining butter and cook onion over medium heat until softened. It need not brown. Preheat the oven to 375 F /190 C and grease a shallow ovenproof dish.
Spread a layer of mashed potato-cabbage mix in the bottom. Layer onion on it and top it with carrot. Repeat the layering and finish it off with a layer of potatoes.Generously grate cheddar cheese on top.Bake for 45 minutes or till the top is golden and crusty.
Remove and serve hot - E.N.J.O.Y
