Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Coarsely chop the broccoli and cauliflower. Set aside.

Next heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and reduce heat to medium-low.

Continue stirring until the onion and garlic are starting to brown, about 5 minutes more. Remove from heat.

Combine cream cheese, sour cream, 1 cup Cheddar, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the onion mixture and stir until well combined. Add the chopped vegetables and stir until coated.

Transfer to an 8-inch-square baking dish and sprinkle evenly with the remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar.
