If you think it’s a lot of work to first cook the vegetables and then gratinate them afterwards, you can use deep-frozen vegetables as a starting point.
Deep frozen broccoli or a blend of summer vegetables are excellent. Put the vegetables deep frozen in the mould and pour the sauce over them. Calculate 4-5 minutes longer in the oven for the frozen ones.
Take green peas, and boil them in a pot; And when they are broken, draw the broth a good quantity through a strainer into a pot, And sit it on the fire; and take onions and parsley, and hew them small together, And cast them thereto; And take powder of Cinnamon and pepper and cast thereto, and let boil; And take vinegar and powder of ginger, and cast thereto; And then take Saffron and salt, a little quantity, and cast thereto; And take fair pieces of pandemaine, or else of such tender bread, and cut it in fair morsels, and cast thereto; And serve it so forth.

Pizza is as nutritious and as good a food as a warm cheese sandwiches.
If you want a stronger taste on the pizza, spread a little ketchup or tomato paste on the dough before adding the vegetables. As cheese you can use any firm white cheese. Mixing different cheeses works well too.
A herbal recipe from “Varme Småretter” (Hot Snacks) published by Gyldendal in 1991
Why not combine your Sunday trips in the spring with providing a little food? Edible crops are growing almost everywhere, but do not pick plants too close to roads with heavy trafic.
It is the first faint sprouts and leaves that are best. Later in the spring and summer, they taste too strongly to be used for food. A mixture of fresh herbs such as basil, parsley, chives, and more can also be used in the patches.
