Baked vegetables with cheese

Merry Christmas to all the readers of Creative saga!!!
baked veges with cheese After making this one, I have decided to put my oven to use for many other things instead of just restricting to cakes and cookies. Baking is definitely an healthy option and there is lots to try and lots to learn.
I made some small mistakes in making this one. So it tasted a bit bland and less spicy. After cooking the vegetables, the water should be completely drained. It is better to add more of pepper to the vegetables itself to make it more spicy. If you want it a more spicy, consider adding red chilly flakes.

Ingredients-
Broccoli- 1cup(florets)
Cauliflower-1cup(florets)
Carrots- 1 chopped into chunks
Beans- 1 cup (cut into long pieces)
Salt- 1tsp
Pepper- 1tsp

White sauce-
Plain flour- 1tsp
Milk- 1cup
Butter- 1tsp
Cheese- 1tsp
Salt- 1tsp(to taste. If the butter is salted,add little or no salt)
Pepper- 1tsp

Grated cheese- 1cup

Method-

Cook the vegetables (add a little salt and pepper to it)in microwave adding little water till it is tender. Drain the water completely.
For the white sauce, heat butter in a pan. Add the flour and mix well. Then stir in the milk. Add salt(if required)and pepper to it. Mix well it it is little thick. Add the cheese.
Put the vegetables in a oven proof dish. Pour the white sauce over it. Mix it slightly. Bake this in a pre heated oven at 180c for 15 to 20 minutes. Then add the grated cheese over it. Bake for 5 more minutes till the cheese melts.
