    This was great got my little boy eating cauliflower and broccoli which he normally only east when covered in cheese sauce. It was really easy to make and I will definitely be adding it to our regular meals.  -  01 May 2010


    Very enjoyable. Easy to make, tweak it a bit by changing the veg ,and a tsp cayanne pepper,also it doesn't say how much stock to add ,I put in 500ml, which I don't think is anyway enough, I'll double he amount next time, and add a fair amount of shallots, or even a jar of silver skin pickled onions. The cobbler was delicious .  -  09 Jan 2014
