Gluten-free Cheesy Baked Cauliflower & Broccoli

Which vegetable side dish  do you like to serve with a roast chicken (or turkey)?  Which vegetable dish do you enjoy making that the whole family can tuck into, without having to make a few separate dishes?

Cauliflower and Broccoli Bake is one of my favourites ~ it goes so well when catering for a large family, or a crowd;  enjoyed by both the meat eaters and the vegetarians.
