In the winter, I love to cook using my oven, I find that it warms the atmosphere, but also the room. �� Not that it makes cold in the house, but I like it. So, this time, it is a recipe of gratin of cauliflower and broccoli full of cheese that it was tested.

I’ve already made this dish several times because it is so simple to make and always so good. I had also tested in a more complete version by adding small pieces of chorizo inside and sprinkling some bread crumbs on the top, it was rather not bad at all !
