Leek and Root Vegetable Gratin

This colorful side dish recipe calls for winter leeks, which are stronger in flavor and texture than summer leeks, but any variety from the supermarket is fine.

Leek and Root Vegetable Gratin



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In small bowl toss together cheese and chopped herbs; set aside. Coat a 3 qt. rectangular baking dish with olive oil. Layer sliced vegetables in the following order, sprinkling salt, pepper, and 3 to 4 tablespoons the cheese mixture between each layer: half the turnip slices, half the potato slices, half the leek slices, half the parsnip slices, and half the sweet potato slices. Repeat, ending with sweet potato slices. Reserve remaining cheese mixture.
  2. Cover with foil. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Remove foil. Sprinkle remaining cheese mixture over top. Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Continue baking, uncovered, 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to brown.
  3. Remove from oven. Sprinkle additional fresh herbs. Let stand 10 minutes. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

*Kitchen Tip:

Slice the russet potato just before layering to prevent discoloring.
