  3. Then, place together with all of the sauce ingredients into your blender jar and blend until smooth.

  4. Pour the mixture into your pot or pan, stir so that everything is mixed well and let it heat up for 2 min, then set aside.

  5. Let’s put it all together into the baking dish! Begin with one layer of thinly sliced potatoes, slightly overlapping.

  6. Add a think layer of sauce, then one layer of sliced broccoli florets.

  7. On top of that, again one thin layer of sauce.

  8. Repeat as many times as necessary (depending on how small or large your baking dish).
