Veg Augratin
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Here in Vegetable Au gratin we have used a healthier version of white sauce by using low-fat milk, low fat butter, and whole wheat flour.  So the calories per serving are reduced to almost half but have not compromised on the taste buds. Baking the vegetables gives the dish a nice texture and crunch and lowest losses of antioxidant activity. It has a good amount of magnesium per serve (Mg – 60mg/ serve) and magnesium has received considerable interest for its potential in improving insulin sensitivity and preventing diabetes.
