Vegetable Bake

Carole's Chatter: Vegetable Bake Experiment

I had a range of vegetables so I thought I'd experiment with baking them all together with a bit of cheese and cream.  It worked out well in taste but was a tad dry.  Next time I'll slice the mushrooms instead of quartering them.


Kumara (sweet potato)
½ small shallot
Brussel sprouts
Mushrooms – Portobello brown
Cheese chunks (grated would be better)
Parmesan cheese
¼ small can of reduced cream
Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper


I oiled the glass baking dish and then dusted it with salt and pepper.

The first layer was made up of slices of potato and kumara

Then a sprinkling of sliced shallot

Another dusting of salt and pepper

Then a layer of sliced Brussel sprouts and quartered mushrooms

Another layer of seasoning followed by some cheese chunks and some grated Parmesan.  Finally I spooned on the reduced cream (if you are trying this I suggest you use heavy cream or reduced cream diluted with water)

Bake in a moderate to hot oven until the potato is fork tender.  In my case this took about 40 minutes.


  1. Such a lovely medley of vegetables. It sounds rich and delicious.

  2. All the vegies sound great, although you are a bit braver than I am. I tend not to experiment too much away from recipes.

  3. Love all the veggies in this dish!

  4. This would be a great change from my usual "oven roasted".

  5. That sounds good, I wonder if a bit of broth in the baking dish would have made a difference in dryness that you mentioned. I'd eat it either way.
