- 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pound broccoflower, cooked, coarsely chopped

- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup no-cholesterol real egg product

DIRECTIONS

Spray large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat
until hot. Saute mushrooms, bell pepper, shallots, and garlic
until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in broccoflower, carrots,
corn, lemon juice, and thyme; saute 5 minutes. Transfer
mixture to large bowl and stir in salt and pepper.

Whisk half and half and flour until smooth in small
saucepan. Heat to boiling; boil, whisking constantly,
until thickened, about 1 minute. Whisk about half the
mixture into egg product; whisk egg mixture back into
half and half. Stir into vegetable mixture.

Beat egg whites in large bowl until foamy. Add cream of
tartar and continue beating until stiff peaks form; fold
into vegetable mixture. Transfer mixture to a lightly greased
1-1/2 quart casserole. Place casserole in a large roasting
pan on center rack of oven; add 2 inches hot water to pan.

Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees 35 minutes or until casserole
is puffed and lightly browned on top. Serve immediately.
