What is cruciferous au gratin and how can I make it to treat irritable bowel syndrome with constipation?

ANSWER

Cruciferous Au Gratin

Makes six side servings

Ingredients

4 cups cauliflower florets (Reserve about 2 cups of the coarsely chopped cauliflower stems)

4 cups broccoli florets

2 tablespoons chopped shallots

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 cup golden mushroom canned soup (substitute vegetable or chicken broth if you like)

1 cup fat-free half and half (low-fat or whole milk can be substituted)

1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons horseradish (to taste)

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

1 cup grated Gruyère cheese (substitute reduced-fat Swiss or Jarlsberg Lite if you like)

Directions:

1. Add cauliflower and broccoli florets to large microwave-safe dish with 1/4 cup of water. Cover dish and microwave on HIGH until just tender (about four to six minutes.)

2. Meanwhile, start heating a medium-sized nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Coat the pan with canola cooking spray. Add the coarsely chopped cauliflower stems, shallots, and garlic, and gently saute until soft (do not brown). Add the golden mushroom soup or vegetable or chicken broth and cook until the stock is almost evaporated. Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender along with the fat-free half-and-half and pulse until fairly smooth. Add the horseradish and season with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Coat a 9-inch pie plate with canola cooking spray. Add the cauliflower and broccoli florets to the dish and pour the half-and-half mixture over the top. Gently toss to blend. Sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until golden brown.
