Food Factor: Easy Veggie Bake

By Ms. Natasha Haynes, MSU Extension Service

Casseroles are a great way to sneak in vegetables. This Easy Veggie Bake has a cheesy flavor that any picky eater will enjoy.


Look for California blend vegetables in the frozen section of your grocery store if you want to try a mix of broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. If you’re interested in a different taste, you can substitute any combination of vegetables you like.
