Preparation

Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Butter a 1-quart ovenproof bowl or round mold.

2. Break the broccoli into florets. Drop into a pan of boiling salted water and cook 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Drain thoroughly, then spread on paper towels to dry.

3. Break the cauliflower into florets. Drop into a pan of boiling salted water and cook 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Drain thoroughly, then spread on paper towels to dry.

4. Place a cluster of cauliflower on the bottom of the prepared bowl, stems pointing inwards. Add a layer of broccoli, buds against the side and stems pointing inwards. Fill the center with smaller florets.

5. Add another layer of cauliflower florets. Finish with a layer of broccoli.

6. Cover the mold with buttered foil. Bake until the vegetables are heated through, 10-15 minutes.

7. Meanwhile, for the sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the flour and cook 2 minutes, stirring. Stir in the milk. Cook and stir until mixture thickens, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cheese until melted. Season with the nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste. Keep warm over very low heat.

8. Hold a warmed serving plate over the top of the bowl, turn them over together, and lift off the bowl. Serve the molded vegetables with the cheese sauce.
