Au gratin is a continental dish, traditionally made with fat-laden white sauce and cheese. Here we have made the white sauce using low-fat milk, and to your surprise, we have used fibre-rich oats for thickening it! The Oats and Vegetable Au Gratin is also chock-full of colourful veggies, which are high in fibre, iron and vitamin A. Serve this healthy delicacy immediately and fresh with whole wheat garlic bread to make a sumptuous meal.

What an Idea!!.....adding oats to the Au Gratin recipe and replacing cheese sauce with the low-calorie cauliflower based cheese sauce…and trust me..it's almost impossible to differentiate in terms of taste…This recipe is not only giving me taste but also health and nutrition.
