CHEEZY BROCCOLI-TOMATO BAKE

INGREDIENTS:

1 pound fresh (or frozen) broccoli, chopped (thawed)
1 1/2 cups quartered cherry or grape tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup chopped onions
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 ounces of your favorite vegan cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons water

DIRECTIONS:
In a large sauce pan on medium heat, saute onions in oil until slightly tender (about two minutes). Add salt, ground pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Stir in broccoli and simmer on low heat. If using fresh broccoli, add about 2 tablespoons of water for moisture (may not be needed if using thawed frozen broccoli). Simmer until slightly tender, stirring often. Add tomatoes and two ounces of shredded vegan cheese. Combine well. Transfer to a 1 1/2 or 2 quart casserole dish and top with remaining vegan cheese. Cover and bake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve hot. (Makes 4-6 side-dish servings.)

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
