Introduction

This is an amazing recipe that tastes fresh and healthy. It's time-consuming, but worthwhile! This is an amazing recipe that tastes fresh and healthy. It's time-consuming, but worthwhile!
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    6 oz broccoli, steamed lightly and cooled
    1 large red pepper,
    4-5 large carrots cut in half lengthwise
    1 really large sweet potato (you want enough to make a layer)
    1/4 small onion, cut in slivers
    7 oz grated lowfat cheese
    19 oz cooked pumpkin/or a squash that cooks up dry
    3 eggs
    1/2 cup lowfat milk
    pepper and salt

Directions

Cut up the carrots into lengthwise halves. Cook the squash/pumpkin in the microwave til tender, peel it and cut it into flat slices. Peel the sweet potato and cut into flat slices. Cut the onion into slivers. Broil the red pepper til the skin begins to blacken, then peel the skin off and flatten the slices Line a large baking sheet with foil and put the carrots and sweet potato on it and cook at 400F 20 minutes. Steam the broccoli just til green and drain it really well. Grate the cheese. Whisk the eggs and milk and add pepper and salt to taste. Spray a 9" square casserole dish with cooking spray. Put the carrots in a layer on the bottom of the dish. Put the sweet potatoes in the next layer. Scatter half the onions over the sweet potato. Put the chopped broccoli over the onion. Put 2/3 of the grated cheese on the broccoli. Put the red pepper down next, flattened as much as possible. Put a thick layer of pumpkin/squash over the top. Very carefully, evenly pour the
milk and egg mixture over everything. Cover the casserole with foil and put in the oven on a baking pan. Bake one hour. Take foil off and test to see if veggies are soft all the way to the bottom. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and allow to sit and cool a bit. Makes six large servings.
