  1. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then stir in the flour and mustard powder and cook for 1 min. Gradually stir in the milk until smooth with no lumps, then keep stirring until the mixture begins to bubble and thickens to a creamy sauce. Remove from the heat, then stir in all but a handful of the grated cheese.

  2. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7 and bring a large pan of water to the boil. Cook the potato slices for 5 mins, tip in the broccoli and cauliflower for another 3 mins, then finally add the peas for 1 more min. Drain all the veg and pat dry. Reserve enough potato slices to cover the top of the finished dish, then gently stir the rest of the vegetables into the sauce with the chives.

  3. Tip into a deep ovenproof dish, arrange over the reserved potato slices, then sprinkle with remaining cheddar. Bake for 20-25 mins until the topping is golden and crisp, then serve straight from the dish.

Slightly disappointed by this recipe. Couldn't really get the white sauce to thicken and felt it was too much mustard. Overall wouldn't make again.

Everyone loves this pie, vegetarian and meat eaters, the introductory words describing this pie are indeed very true in my house, I have made this several times exactly as recipe, it's always welcomed and the empty serving dish is the biggest compliment you can get.

I'm sorry, but this is the worst dish I've made from this site. If I'd paid proper attention when I was doing my weekly meal plan and read through this recipe, I would've seen that this is basically a side dish. I would describe this as a 'bake' rather than a pie. This must be a meat-eater's idea of a great vegetarian dish, it really isn't, sorry. Like potato dauphinois crossed with cauliflower cheese. My husband is a chef and he wasn't impressed either and I ended up chucking most of it away. Also cheese sauce is so much easier to make if you chuck all the ingredients in the pan at the same time. Just heat and stir frequently and it'll end up perfect. I can't understand why other reviewers love this so much!

It's a good recipe to mix and match ingredients with, I make it at the end of the week sometimes when I have leftover vegetables to use up

This tasted really good as a Sunday night alternative to full on vegetable sides with a roast. I used 160g mild cheese (as that was all i had) and thought that i could have got away with less. You could probably get away with only 100g if you used mature cheddar and were watching the calories.

Didn't really like this - and you need a massive pan!

Tasty dish and easy to make.

I loved this! So did my children, and we all know how difficult it is for children to eat vegetables! I slightly changed the recipe (I added tones more cheese!) and it was really really delicious!

Lovely recipe, I put some leek and peppers in as well and layered the veg rather than mix it together then poured the sauce over. I also put sliced tomatoes on top before I sprinkled the cheese over, it was absolutely gorgeous, everybody said they definitely want it again
