Ingredients

  • ¼ cups sweet corn, cooked

  • 2-3 tbsp peas, cooked
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning (a blend of basil, thyme and oregano)

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ¼ cup hot milk
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • 4 tbsp cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

Step 1

Steam the carrots and beans. Heat butter in a pan and add oil as well followed by crushed garlic. Now add the flour and cook it for 2-3 minutes.




Step 2

Next add milk and water and keep stirring. As it cooks it will get thicker. Once the sauce is cooked, add the veggies – corn, peas, steamed carrots and beans and the Italian seasoning. Add the salt, pepper and sugar and stir. Take it off heat.





Step 3

Grease 4 individual ramekins with butter. Fill it with the prepared filling. Sprinkle grated cheese on each of them.




Step 4

Bake in a preheated oven at 180 C for 10-15 minutes. If you are using a microwave, switch to the convection mode and then preheat it. When the cheese melts and turns light golden, it is done. Take it out of oven and let it cool a bit. Enjoy it warm.
