Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin

Broccoli and Cauliflower Gratin

 Making a broccoli and cauliflower gratin is a quick and easy way to add veggies to a meal. It’s healthy food with a little decadence! I usually make this to pair with a starchy or carb loaded dinner like spaghetti. I also like serving this simple vegetable gratin with a side of Asian mayo to get the flavors to pop even more. Balancing low fat and low calories dishes with heavier ones is something I do all the time, so Ben and I can maintain a healthy weight while still being able to indulge. The salami transforms itself when cooked in the oven; it becomes crispy and even saltier, with little pockets of fat melting in your mouth.
