Cauliflower, Romanesco & Broccoli Gratin

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/cauliflower_romanesco_broccoli_gratin.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2013

This cauliflower-and-broccoli gratin is healthier than traditional gratins thanks to a sauce made with low-fat milk and just enough full-flavored cheese to keep it rich without extra saturated fat and calories. For a healthier cheese-crust topping, opt for cheese crackers made without partially hydrogenated oils.

12 servings, 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add florets and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute. Drain in a colander and immediately rinse with cold water until cool. Drain well. Spread on a baking sheet or kitchen towel and pat with a clean towel to soak up any excess water.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch (or similar-size shallow ovenproof dish) with cooking spray.
  3. Combine milk, mustard, garlic powder and salt in the large pot; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl; whisk into the simmering milk. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, whisking. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook, whisking, for 2 minutes. Add Cheddar, Gruyère and chives; whisk until smooth. Remove from heat.
  4. Add the florets to the pot and gently stir to coat with the cheese sauce. Transfer to the prepared baking dish. Combine crackers and oil in a small bowl and sprinkle over the vegetables.
  5. Bake until the cheese sauce is bubbling and the florets are starting to brown on top, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm.
