Potato Cauliflower Gratin


Cauliflower Potato Gratin Even if it comes to packing for a weekend, I always face the same dilemma: what will I wear? I always pack more than what I need and still end up wishing I had taken that white shirt, those brown pumps or that blue sweater…. Am I the only one in this position? Each time I look at the people traveling with me and, to me they feel more pragmatic in their packing choices. Would you believe that I make a packing list for the weekend? I really do, especially when I’m excited about the trip. Tomorrow with my boyfriend we’re going to Basel till Sunday. I’m really looking forward to it, we’ll attend the autumn fair (Herbstmesse) and I can’t wait to check it out. So let the dilemma begin. At least when I’m in the kitchen the situation is a little better because I actually like missing an ingredient or two: it’s a way to get creative. Fortunately for the potato and cauliflower gratin I had all the ingredients and the process was a smooth one.

Potato Cauliflower Gratin

 

Recipe for 4

Prep time: 15 min

Cook time: 50-55 min

 

Ingredients:

340 g potatoes

300 g cauliflower

30 g butter

3 tbsp. flour

2 dl milk

2 dl vegetable stock

Nutmeg

60 g grated cheese

Pepper

 

Recipe

Heat oven at 200°C.

Cut the potatoes into 3 cm chunks; place them in salted boiling water and cook until done.

Cut the cauliflower into florets (roughly the same size as the potatoes) and blanch them by boiling them for 3 minutes.

Once the potatoes and cauliflowers are ready place them in a greased baking dish.

Melt the butter in a pan and add the flour while constantly whisking. After about five minutes start adding the milk little by little. Once it has thickened, do the same with the stock. Add a little freshly grated nutmeg, stir a last time and remove from heat. Add 2/3 of the cheese and stir again to melt it in. Pour the white sauce on the potatoes and cauliflower making sure it coats all of the vegetables. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and place in the oven for 20-25 min, until golden brown. Remove from oven and leave for a few minutes before serving.

    • Thank you, it goes well with the rainy weather we have had the past few day over here…

  1. I do like thie idea of combining potatoes and cauliflower and preparing them au grain. It’s chilly and raining right now and, as you mentioned, this would go very well. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • Indeed gratins are so excellent with cold/bad weather. The weather has been so bad that this morning I woke up discovering I have my own little temporary river flowing in my garden… 🙂
