Veggie gratin

August 27, 2017  •  , , , ,

I am luckier than most in that I am spending my Summers in the Chouf Mountains in Lebanon and all the veggies are local or homegrown in our kitchen garden.  In any case, here is a simple dish using a bunch of veggies and a MAGGI soup mix for a quick and easy boost of flavor. The veggies can be interchangeable of course, based on what you have at hand. It is similar to a crustless quiche.

Veggie gratin

6-8 servings

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

4 large eggs

1 cup cooking cream (whipping cream) or milk

1 cup shredded cheese (Mozzarella or Cheddar)

1 MAGGI corn soup mix with black pepper

2 cups corn

2 cups sliced carrots

2 cups sliced zucchini

1/2 cup green peas

1/2 cup broccoli

1 chili pepper (optional)

1/3 cup chopped parsley (or dill)

1 Tbsp garlic paste (5 cloves mashed with a dash of salt till pasty)

Instructions

  1. Cook or steam all the vegetables separately, drain and set aside.
  2. In a jug with a spout, pour the cream and add the eggs, mixing them one at a time. Add the garlic paste, soup mix, and half the cheese and combine the ingredients.
  3. Place the veggies in an ovenproof dish and pour the custard tossing them a bit to make sure they are well coated with it.
  4. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese and bake in a preheated 375F oven for about 30 minutes or until the custard has set and the cheese is melted and golden. Garnish with fresh herbs if you like.
