What you need:
– 1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
– 1 carrot, cubed
– 1 potato, cubed
– 3 slices of cooked ham*, cut into small pieces
– 1/2 cup all purpose cream
– 1 tsp minced garlic
– 2 tsp of Lipton Onion recipe** (optional)
– 2 1/2 cups of water with 1 tsp of chicken powder
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1 tsp brown sugar
– pinch of nutmeg
– Magnolia Quikmelt Cheese
– Mozzarella cheese

Bring to boil the water mixed with chicken powder. Boil the cubed potato and carrots until a little tender but not too soft. You should be able to poke it with a fork easily. Add the broccoli florets and cook for another minute then drain.

Set oven to broiler setting and preheat at 200 degrees Celsius.

In a pan, sauté the minced garlic until fragrant but not burnt. Add the chopped ham and cook for 2 minutes. Add the all purpose cream, followed by the salt, brown sugar, and Lipton onion recipe. Let it boil for a minute then turn off the heat.

Transfer the vegetables to an oven safe dish. Pour the cream mixture over the vegetables. Grate some Quikmelt Cheese and Mozzarella cheese equally on top until almost covered. Sprinkle some nutmeg on top. Bake until the cheese have melted and burnt a little.

*Instead of ham, you can use bacon which I think will make the dish more fragrant.
** If you don’t have the Lipton Onion recipe, you can substitute with chopped onions. Sauté them together with the garlic. In this case, you need to change 1/2 tsp of salt to 1 tsp.

I bought the Lipton Onion Recipe from US. It’s really yummy and you can practically mix it in anything you cook to add flavor.

The brand of chicken powder that I used for this recipe is Knorr. It has no MSG, no preservatives, and no artificial coloring. Great for cooking!
