Broccoli cheddar bake

By Karmul

  • 4 cups chopped fresh broccoli

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1 1/2 cups egg substitute

  • 1 cup fat-free milk

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. In a nonstick skillet, combine the broccoli, onion and water. Saute over medium-high heat until the vegetables are tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Keep adding water to prevent the vegetables from drying out, but use as little water as possible. Drain and set aside when the broccoli is done.

  3. In a bowl, combine the egg substitute, milk and 3/4 cup cheese. Add in the broccoli mixture and pepper. Stir to mix well.

  4. Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Set the baking dish into a large pan filled with about 1 inch of water. Bake uncovered until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with the remaining 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Let stand about 10 minutes before serving.

I think I used too deep of a dish, and it took longer to bake than I hoped. But it was great. A nice option would be to use Asparagus with shredded swiss cheese, that would be a tasty treat!

My doctor told me to eat a lot of broccoli and that is what I am trying to do. I also love cheddar cheese and will be trying this recipe soon.
