Brussels sprout top leaves, parsnip and potato gratin

Brussels sprout top leaves gratin 52

Making gratin of vegetables are quite easy and it is really convenient for the meals during the week as they can be easily prepared in advance. On top of that, the béchamel based gratin is a nice way to associate eating vegetable and keeping a comfort food side. For this recipe, I decided to use the Brussels sprout to leaves (cooked more or less like spinach), potatoes and for making sure that the gratin is full of flavour, I added some grated parsnip. This is a delicious recipe that make an easy dinner or lunch box.

The recipe is done for being vegan but it is easily to replace the vegan cheese and milk with dairy based one.
