Ingredients

  • 4 to 8 cups assorted Florida vegetables, chopped (corn, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, peas, bell peppers, mushrooms, etc…)
  • 1 cup low-fat cheese, shredded
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1½ tbs corn starch
  • 4 servings boxed pancake mix of choice (follow directions on box, may require other ingredients)
  • 1 tbs of your favorite dried herbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Drain veggies, reserving broth, and add them to casserole dish
  • Bring the reserved veggie broth back to a boil
  • In a small bowl, combine the corn starch with ½ cup cold water and mix well
  • Remove the vegetable broth from the heat and slowly whisk in small amounts of the corn starch mixture at a time
  • Return the vegetable broth mixture back to the heat and let it come to a boil again
  • When the vegetable broth is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, season it with the dried herb blend. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the vegetable broth mixture over the lightly cooked vegetables. Only use enough of the vegetable broth mixture to coat the lightly cooked vegetables.
