Broccoli cheese with creamy mushroom sauce and roasted potatoes

Sometimes I just need to have this sort of a meal, a cheesy vegetable bake, a creamy sauce and roasted potatoes. It's such comfort food for me, and surely for many others, but I don't make these kind of meals that often anymore. Normally I prefer lighter meals, but isn't it just nice to be a little naughty sometimes? Especially now when the weather is so rainy and gloomy.

I made quite basic versions of all components, so this is also a quite effortless meal and can be easily made fairly quickly when you're feeling blue.

Roasted potatoes:

400 g potatoes
1 tsp vegetable oil
Smoked paprika

Brush the potatoes with vegetable oil and sprinkle smoked paprika on the top. Roast in the oven until soft with a nice roasted skin.

Broccoli cheese:

1 broccoli
1 onions
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp vegetable stock powder
Ground black pepper
100 g grated Cheddar and Mozzarella mix

Cut the broccoli into florets and steam them until they are almost done. Chop the onions and garlic cloves finely and cook them in olive oil until soft. Add the seasoning and combine with the steamed florets. Put into an oven dish, cover with cheese and bake until the cheese has melted and the top is golden brown.

Mushroom sauce:

250 g baby button mushrooms
1 onion
1 garlic clove
1 tsp olive oil
150 ml single cream
Ground black pepper
Fresh thyme

Slice the mushrooms and chop the onion and garlic finely. Cook them in olive oil for a few minutes and then add the cream. Season and let simmer until the cream has been infused with the flavours.

Serve the components together, a little salad on the side and enjoy!
