  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • carrot
  • your favorite variety of mushrooms
  • butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • grated cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 375oF.
  • Cut the vegetables, including the mushrooms, into bite-size pieces. Heat the butter in a frying pan, add the vegetables and cook, stirring, for a few minutes. You want them to retain their crispness so don’t overcook them. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • Transfer the cooked vegetables to a shallow baking dish (or dishes), sprinkle with grated cheese and pop in the preheated oven for about two minutes or just until the cheese melts. Serve at once with fried or grilled fish, chicken or meat.
