Vegetables were something I had to eat as a child – not something I looked forward to. Evan as an adult I couldn’t find much enthusiasm. I decided to experiment and came up with this dish that I can assume you my mama never made.
3 Carrots – grated
1/2 Fresh broccoli bunch
1 Large onion
1/2 Green pepper
12 Mushrooms (medium)
1/3 Cup vegetable oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tablespoon dried basil
Use a little of the oil to saute the chopped up onion, green pepper and mushrooms. I always refer to the pepper, onion, mushroom mix as the holy trio.
Next, chop up the brocolli and cook it until soft. While it is cooking, grate the carrots.
Drain the broccoli and put in a large mixing bowl. Add the sauteed holy trio, the carrots, three beaten eggs, salt and pepper, basil, the remainder of the oil and mix. This is what it looked like before going into the oven.
Bake in a casserole dish (spray with oil before putting in) at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes.
When finished I couldn’t resist – didn’t even wait for my guests. It was bubbling hot and um, um, good.
