A Vegetable Dish That Your Children Will Eat

Is it hard to find vegetables that your child/children will eat? If your answer is no, consider yourself very fortunate. But if your answer is yes, then this is a vegetable dish that they will eat. My daughter who is not a vegetable lover actually took some home with her.

Cheddar cheese is melted over the whole dish. Everything with melted cheese is always better. Plus it's a low carbohydrate dish, not to mention the nutritional value of broccoli and cauliflower.

One serving, about 4 oz., has about 68% vitamin C among other vitamins. So try this dish and enjoy and stay healthy.

Using Fresh Cheese

Whenever possible choose to grate your own cheese. The pregrated you get in the stores have their place, but the cheese you grate yourself melts so much better than the pregrated.

I used sharp cheddar cheese but you can use whatever cheese you like that melts well. The white cheddar cheese is good too or grated Swiss cheese or Monterey Jack cheese are other possibilities.

        Hi Pat, I just came across your last post on my hub. I don't know how I missed it. Thank you so much again for your faithfulness in responding to my recipes. I'm glad your family will like this. I figured children will eat almost anything with cheese melted all over it.

        Blessings to you.

        I love melted cheese on broccoli. I've never tried baking broccoli and cauliflower, though. Thanks for the idea, Rachel.

        I know that I would like this. The vegetables are a nice color contrast. Melted cheese would make them taste delicious.

        How easy and I know delicious. I am sure this dish will disappear quickly and be a favorite! It is two of my favorite veggies for sure. I love them both raw to dip in Mexican cheese dip, too. So no doubt about this treat.

        Thanks for sharing!

        Rachel, my husband loves dishes with cheese and though we have done this with cauliflower, mixing both adds a nice colour to the dish. Really healthy.

        Oh, this sounds so good! Love cauliflower and broccoli but have never tried baking them before. This sounds like a great dish for me to serve on Easter Sunday.
