  • 1 pound broccoli florets
  • 1 pound cauliflower florets
  • 3 tablespoons STAR Signature Series Garlic Flavored Olive Oil , divided
  • 1 large onion , sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • salt and fresh ground pepper , to taste


  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese , divided

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Drizzle a little olive oil on the bottom of a square baking dish; spread it around and set aside.

  • Wipe out the skillet, add 2 tablespoons olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook for 3 minutes, or until softened.

  • Remove from heat and transfer the vegetables to previously prepared baking dish; set aside.
  • Wipe the skillet and add 1 tablespoon olive oil, 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, corn starch, evaporated milk, mustard, salt, pepper, and paprika.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a whisk until melted and thickened; about 2 minutes.
  • Pour cheese sauce over broccoli and cauliflower; stir to combine. Sprinkle remaining cheeses over the top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and bubbly. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
