Vegetable Gratin and Second Anniversary

Dear friends...its been really long since our last post. We have been so busy with a new addition to the family. Have missed you all so much. Good to be back. Since it is actually our 3rd anniversary today, thought I will post this dish.

When I was at our company meet, I had this dish for the first time and liked it very much. Unfortunately I didn't know the name of the dish When I googled I got confused between 2 different dishes vegetable casserole and vegetable gratin. The dish that I ate, looked more like vegetable gratin but the recipe required me to add egg. Since we do not eat egg, I substituted it with cream ( which is used in vegetable casserole).This recipe is adaptation from both the dishes. Hubby loves this dish a lot :)

Brinjal (Sliced into rounds)- 1 medium sized
Zucchini (Sliced into rounds)- 1 medium sized
Potato (Sliced into rounds)- 1
Red Onion - 1 (Sliced into medium chunks)
Carrot - 2
Bell Peppers - 1 small
Cream - 1 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Grated Garlic - 2 tsp
Grated Cheese - 2 tbsp
Pepper or Oregano to taste

Preheat the oven to 200° C. Place the vegetables in a baking dish. Mix milk, cream, garlic and salt and pour it evenly over the vegetables. The vegetables should be fully covered with this mix. You can add more cream or milk if required. Bake this in the oven for about 10-15 mins. Remove and stir the contents once. Then bake again till it turns light brown. At this point add the grated cheese and bake again till the cheese turn brown.
Remove and add pepper and/or Oregano and enjoy.

Preparation time: About 45 mins.
Serves: 2
