Ingredients:

1 head Broccoli, about 250g cut into florets
½ head Cauliflower, about 350g cut into florets
1 tbsp Olive Oil
Culley's Chipotle Salt
50g Butter
50g Ceres Organics Wholemeal Flour
600ml Milk
125g roughly grated Matured Gouda
50g finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano
Spice Trader Ground Nutmeg
Spice Trader Black Pepper
½ cup Ceres Organics Black Quinoa
½ cup Ceres Organics White Quinoa
2 Little Boys Chorizo Sausages, thinly sliced
50g Culleys Peri Peri Panko Breadcrumbs

METHOD


Preheat oven to 200C degrees.
Cook quinoa in 2 cups of water, bring to the boil and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
In a large roasting tray, toss together broccoli and cauliflower with oil and plenty of Culley's Chipotle salt. Roast for 10mins, carefully shake tray to turn and roast for a further 10min.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium pan. Stir in flour and cook for 30 sec, then take pan of heat and gradually whisk in the milk. Return mixture to heat, bring to the boil stirring constantly. Then leave to simmer for 2 min (stirring occasionally) until thickened and glossy. Add most of the cheese and stir until melted; check for seasoning, I needed to add a little nutmeg and freshly ground pepper.

Stir the cooked quinoa, roasted vegetables and Chorizo sausage into the cheese sauce and transfer to a 1.8 litre dish. Top with breadcrumbs and remaining cheese, and transfer dish to the oven.
Bake for 20 min until heated through and golden on top. Serve immediately, with a green salad if you would like.
