This recipe is quick, easy to make and very popular at my home. Coconut milk has been used in the white sauce instead of dairy milk, which adds a delicious light nutty flavour. The tangy taste of the feta cheese provides a perfect contrast to the mildness of the other ingredients, but if you're vegan or cooking for someone who is, try substituting one of the excellent nut or soya cheeses that are readily available.

This casserole recipe is very versatile. If you're not partial to the vegetables I've used or they're out of season where you live, any others can be substituted.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

Ingredients
1 large sweet potato
1 large broccoli
3 x 400 grams coconut milk
200 grams butter
1/4 cup flour
A pinch or two of salt
A pinch of black pepper
A pinch of mixed spice or cinnamon
1 block feta cheese

Method
Wash the sweet potato and broccoli, and cut into medium-sized pieces.

While the vegetables are being cooked, cut the butter into small pieces and melt on the stove. Simultaneously, boil the coconut milk in a separate saucepan.

butter


When the butter has completely melted, add the flour and cook on a low to medium heat, stirring regularly so it doesn't burn.



white sauce


When the coconut milk reaches boiling point, turn the heat down and allow it to simmer. The vegetables should also be removed from the heat when they're cooked, but still firm.

When the flour is a light golden colour, slowly add the coconut milk, stirring constantly, until a smooth sauce is created. If you like a more runny sauce, add all of the coconut milk or if you prefer a thicker one (as mine was, in the picture below), add less. At this point I also added the salt, pepper and mixed spice.

Once the sauce is a satisfactory consistency, gently add it to the cooked vegetables. It can then be transferred to one, or more, casserole dishes. Scatter feta cheese on top.

Place the casserole dishes into the oven and bake at approximately 170 degrees for about 20 - 30 minutes, or until the feta cheese is lightly golden.

Your casserole is now complete. For a tasty wholesome family meal, serve warm with wholemeal rice.
