This is my Mom’s Easy 6 Vegetable Baked Casserole! It’s packed full of fresh and nutritious vegetables, which are slowly baked to perfection.
This dish reminds me a lot of my childhood. I believe this was one of the very first dishes my mum showed me how to cook.
I remember the process of having to chop all this cabbage-like it was yesterday. It was the best time I ever spent with my mum – in the kitchen. This was the time – for us. There was nothing else, but us and that cabbage.
I remember we used to cook the cabbage and veggies on the stove first until it softens, then we would slow cook it in the oven…I remember we always used to cook that dish in the winter, when it was so cold, but the kitchen so warm. The steam coming off that pot full of veggies…Oh and the smell!
This dish really brings me back to some of the few good memories of my childhood.
I am sharing this recipe with you today, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. This recipe has always had a special place in my heart.
