Default anyone have a suggestion for broccoli casserole?

I have lots of broccoli and a couple heads of cauliflower to use up.
I'm hoping to find a recipe that doesn't use cream soups or processed cheese.
Any suggestions?ottytra :

The best way I have ever had cauliflower is roasted.
Drizzle with oil, salt and pepper
Roast at 350 for an hour, or up the temp and roast for a shorter period of time.
It is so good this way. My DH that won't usually eat cauliflower gobbled it up like this.


I just make cream soup from scratch,
Make a white sauce using chicken stock as the base and add some extra herbs, when I need it for a casserole. I don't do it often, but it works well when I do .

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

2 chicken breasts cooked and shredded or chopped
broccoli florrets raw if you want crunch cooked for soft
1 cup cooked rice
1 cup sour cream
1 chicken bullion cube
1 cup milk
shredded cheese

Layer rice on the bottom of your casserole dish. Then broccoli florretts(sp). Then chicken. Wisk together sourcream and milk and disolve bullion in this mixture. Pour over the whole casserole. Bake in the oven at 350 for 45 minutes covered with foil. Take out, uncover, and spread shredded cheese all over the top and let melt. Yum.

I found just what I was looking for in the Simply in Season cookbook.
Thought I'd add it in case anyone else ever wanted a no meat, no rice, just veggie way to use up broccoli or cauliflower.

Cook 5-6 cups veggie (steam or microwave)
On stovetop, saute 1 diced onion in 2T oil, add 1/4 cup flour and cook 3 minutes until flour is browned. Wisk in 2 cups milk and bring to boil, simmer until thickened. Remove from heat and add 1 c cheddar cheese. Toss veggie in this cream sauce. Pour into baking pan and top with bread crumbs and parmesan.
Bake 350 for 20 minutes.

Thanks to everyone who replied with suggestions!
