Broccoli and cauliflower with a creamy sauce

This is a lighter version of the well-known cauliflower cheese. By using yoghurt instead of a rich cheese sauce, broccoli and cauliflower is still a delicious side dish.

 200 g broccoli
 200 g cauliflower
 ¼ cup (60 ml) grated cheddar cheese
 175 ml plain low-fat yoghurt
 ½ cup (125 ml) plain smooth low-fat cottage cheese
 ½ tsp (2,5 ml) ground nutmeg or paprika
 4 tsp (20 ml) chopped fresh parsley
 1 tsp (5 ml) prepared mustard (optional)
 ½ tsp (2,5 ml) salt
 pinch paprika or peri-peri
