Gratin à la vegetarian

I am not a vegetarian, I don’t think I’ll ever be. But there is something about this gratin that makes me want to have it all the time! It is probably because i’d eat anything with white sauce and cheese 🙂 I usually make this for dinner, but it can be made as a side dish for lunch, next to salad or grilled “something”. For this recipe, I used broccoli and carrots, but it can be made with any vegetable you have in the fridge: cauliflower, squash, eggplant and the list goes on…

So, here’s what you need:

For the white sauce:

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 2tbsp of flour
  • 1/2 cup of grated gruyere cheese (or parmesan cheese)
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp of salt

For top of the gratin:

  • melted butter ( for taste )
  • 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
  • more grated cheese ( for extra taste )

Here’s what you need to do :

  1. Preheat oven to 200
  2. Boil vegetables, in my case, broccoli and carrots. Broccoli needs 3 mins, carrots need a little longer.
  3. Heat milk with butter, then add flour, one spoon at a time.Add cheese and keep stirring. Mix in the spices
  4. In a Pyrex or oven pan, add a layer of the white sauce, pour in all vegetables, another layer of white sauce.
  5. Sprinkle bread crumbs, cheese and butter
  6. Grill in oven for 15 mins and enjooooooooy 🙂
