My personal favorite begins with making Gratin's. Gratins are French dishes that have a vegetables  baked along with bechamel and cheese. This is a simple recipe. You can modify this by adding herbs of your choice. I often keep changing the flours I use to make the sauce more healthier and minimise the flour content

A few usage ideas:

  1. Vegetable Gratin's - My favorite is the Cauliflower Gratin
  2. Spinach Ricotta Filled Cannelloni Recipe
  3. Grilled Vegetarian Eggplant Moussaka
