Baked Brocooli and Cauliflower



A few months ago I was on a huge clean eating kick and wanted to make the most out of the items in my fridge. I was also working and hitting the gym a lot and didn't want to bother with preparing an involved meal that included lots of cleaning afterwards. Thanks to the wonders of frozen veggies I quickly whipped up this delicious meal that I have my family in NYC obsessing over. I've seriously made this more times than I can count in the short time that I've been here. This is a really easy side dish to make. I personally eat it as a main dish though because sometimes I can't be bothered with preparing and cleaning up after meat.

 Ingredients

-Frozen Broccoli
-Frozen Cauliflower
-One White Onion
-One Garlic Head
-Mozzarella Cheese
-Olive Oil





First things first:  I chop the onion and garlic I throw everything into a baking dish, pour some olive oil in it and mix it with my hands.  I used to put it all in a large zip lock bag to shake it all up but found that my hands did the trick much better!



 I always make sure to overdo it with the shredded cheese on top just for that extra bit of cheesiness and crunch. I love cheese!



The next step is to throw this in the oven for 30-45 minutes at 350.

 


I like to put tons of garlic in mine, as well as red pepper flakes, but I've been making this for kids so I had to put a little extra work one or two times. I decided to saute´ some garlic in olive oil and red pepper flakes. Yumness!!!



This smelled like heaven!



The final project. Crispy, cheesy and garlicky. The great thing about this dish is that it can easily be reheated in the same baking pan or elsewhere. 




P.S. I don't really measure when it comes to something so simple and neither should you. Try this, you will love it!
