- 1/2 cup chopped parsley

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 375°F.
Step 2: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and garlic, and sauté until they become translucent, about 5 minutes.

Step 6: Add the chopped broccoli and cauliflower florets to the skillet, and stir until they are coated with the spice mixture.
Step 7: Add the vegetable broth to the skillet, and stir to combine. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Then cover the skillet with a lid, and reduce the heat to low. Let the mixture cook for about 10 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
Step 8: Add the frozen peas and green beans to the skillet, and stir to combine.
Step 9: Transfer the vegetable mixture to a large casserole dish.
Step 10: Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, until it’s heated through and the top is golden brown.
Step 11: Sprinkle chopped parsley and cilantro over the casserole as a garnish before serving. Enjoy!
