  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.

Replaced potatoes with sweet potatoes which gave it an interesting bite and went with broccoli and spinach - went down very well with my husband and guests. The cheese does make it a little heavy though.

flour is the utmost importance! will fail otherwise... it should be in the appropriate order not at the end

Even if I hadn't used too much mustard and had to do the sauce again, the advised preparation time of 15 minutes for this dish is wildly optimistic. I used potato slices only for the cover but added diced sweet potatoes and asparagus to the broccoli and cauliflower. Forgot about the peas. It really is a superb dish. My Indian vegetarian wife adored it.

Very tasty, would certainly do this again needed longer prep than suggested and what a messy recipe, had every work top in my average kitchen used,probably better to plan this yourself than the way it is suggested..I think you could cut down in the tidy up and washing if like me you used an oven to hob dish, once you have par boiled veg and drained veg in colander then re use this dish for the main bake..

Very yummy!

Fantastic. We had a purple cauliflower from the farmer's market which made the sauce go purple in places. We're also trying to diet so used half fat cheddar & semi skimmed milk. We'll probably have this all the time now.

Loved this. My father and brother normally moan when I do a meal without meat in, but this kept them quiet! My vegetarian fiance liked it too.
