This is a little time consuming
but so worth it..
Probably my favorite vegetable dish.
4 ½ c. fresh broccoli cut into i-inch pieces (pre-steamed for 3-5 minutes)
I like the bottom of my dish covered with broccoli.
1 ½ c. carrots, cut into julienne strips (pre cook separately 3-5- minutes)
1 c. diced celery ( I saute these in garlic butter first)
1 jar pimentos (or not)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 TB. minced onion
2 TB parsley flakes
1 stick butter
1 c. sour cream
1 ½ c. shredded cheese (Colby jack)
1 TB. milk
Once your broccoli and carrots have been steamed separately,
BUT NOT COOKED THROUGH
drain. In a greased 13X9 dish layer broccoli first on the bottom, then carrots on top, celery and pimentos.
In a sauce pan combine and heat the soup, butter, minced onions, and parsley. Once heated add sour cream then cheese. If too thick to pour add milk to thin. Pour over vegetables, and sprinkle with cheese on top.
Cover with foil and bake at 350 until heated through 4-50 min.
Seriously the sauce is soooooo good. A great way to get your kids to eat veggies.
