Microwave Vegetable au Gratin Recipe
For the White Sauce, follow this step by step I have already shown. However in microwave, it takes even less time to make white sauce.
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, mw for 2 mins with a minute interval. Let it cool down and then pulse it in a mixer to get a smooth flowing sauce. If you want to thin the sauce, simply add more milk and make it thin, as you will be cooking it when making the gratin.
For the Vegetable au gratin
White Sauce - 4 tbsp
Mixed vegetables - 1 cup (Carrots, Beans and Potato)
Tomato Slices -1 medium
Cheese - 3/4 cup (I used Cheddar, Mozzarella, regular cheese)
Breadcrumbs - 2 slices
How to make the Vegetable au gratin
In a microwave bowl, take the chopped vegetables and mw for 7 mins.
Add the white sauce and MW for 2 mins.
Once done, transfer to a baking tray, spread well, add grated cheese, breadcrumbs and sprinkle another layer of cheese over it.
You can either MW for another 2 mins or bake at 185 C for 5 mins.
