How to Cook Tasty Vegetable Gratin

  1. Peel the carrots and slice them. Cut the pepper in two, remove the seeds and cut into thin slices. Wash the cauliflower and cut into small florets. Cook the carrots, pepper and cauliflower in boiling, salted water for 15 minutes then add the peas and bring back to the boil.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the cream (or crème fraîche), the eggs, the olive oil, the chopped chives and a good pinch of salt. Strain the vegetables and place them in a casserole dish in alternate layers, basted with the cream-egg mixture after each layer.
  3. Mix the ras el hanout, the breadcrumbs and the nuts together (if you can't get ras el hanout, you can use mixed spices or garam masala). Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the vegetables, along with a few knobs of butter. Cook in a preheated moderately hot oven (Mk 6 - 400ºF - 200ºC) for 20 minutes. Serve hot.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
You can easily vary the vegetables, adding blanched spring greens, for example.

This was great, and it looked nice too! My boyfriend said it looked like it was from a restaurant. I was very pleased with the way it turned out.

Absolutely delicious! Served with a roast chicken, it made a perfect meal. Added sliced fresh mushrooms to the layering process because we add mushrooms to everything. Between us, my husband and I ate the whole thing!
