Megadetic will result in casserole from broccoli and cauliflower. These two "related" products perfectly harmonize to taste, color and texture. Nevertheless, it is wise to choose a sauce and accompanying ingredients. They should in no case "drown out" the delicate taste of these two kinds of cabbage. Therefore, to such a "sisterly duet" you can safely add carrots, leeks, bell peppers, tomatoes and even sweet and sour apple. However, to make it all five stars, you need to perform the following steps step by step:
- divide and cut inflorescences;
- minutes three boil the cabbage in salted water and pour it into a colander to dry it;
- chop onion and garlic, which will give the dish a magical fragrance;
- fry them for 2 minutes. in oil, adding 3 tbsp. l. flour;
- pour 150-200 ml of meat or fish broth (after 5 minutes in the sauce put 4 pieces of butter / cheese);
- season with salt, paprika, pepper and nutmeg;
- Mix 100 g of breading with spices, pour in 4 tbsp. l. butter (melted), carefully grind;
- chop 100-150 grams of Parmesan cheese or a fountain.
At this stage, the basic preparations are made. Then follow the familiar steps of "zapkovki" casserole with broccoli, which is cooked in the oven. While the sauce has not cooled down, it is necessary to promptly conduct the formation, and this will require:
- ½ a part of the cabbage to lay on the bottom of the mold, pour half of the cream sauce and sprinkle with cheese chips;
- Put the remaining ingredients in the same order;
- in the end, evenly spread the oiled bread crumbs on the surface;
- send the casserole from the broccoli cabbage in the oven for 35-40 minutes.
In other interpretations of preparation for this "family duet" along with inflorescences, leek, carrots, sweet peppers and spinach pass. And in the sauce, add grated tomato, but only without skins.As decorations use twigs of parsley and dill.
This gentle treat perfectly combines with red fish. For example, you can cut into cubes trout fillets, salmon or salmon and present along with the casserole. Moreover, this fish can be added to the dish itself.
It is worth noting that the broccoli casserole with cheese can include various products. With it, the meat, fish, and some cereals are perfectly combined. Of course, it is better to separately prepare each of these ingredients, because they need more time than cabbage. Then they should be combined and sent to bake. Perhaps it's time to read this list. Thus, the recipe for broccoli casseroles should include:
- minced meat from chicken fillet or pork;
- whole / chopped tomatoes;
- mushrooms (champignons, honey agarics, but a white mushroom to taste in general will resemble chicken);
- boiled rice with meat fillet;
- smoked bacon or thighs;
For all this, the cooking principle remains the same. You can even more diversify the palatable range of canned peas, as well as beans. It should be somehow unusual to present the dish. With the help of special shapes from the casserole, some cut out funny figures: a heart, houses or animals. On a golden crust, they originally lay out bright green with red flowers made from tomatoes, as well as fruits.
A successful addition to the broccoli casserole will be a sour cream / mustard sauce. But yogurt or mousse with sour will be an excellent "companion" for such a meal.
Among other things, when buying broccoli, you need to pay attention to its appearance. The bright shade and elastic texture of the inflorescences indicate a high quality of the product.At the same time, it should not give off a fetid smell. Observance of these insignificant reminders will help to prepare a useful and unusually appetizing treat.
