Parsnip and Leek Gratin

Ingredients

  • 1.3 kg (3 lb) parsnips, peeled and sliced 
  • 625 ml (2 1/2 cups) milk
  • To taste salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 leek, washed and sliced thinly
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) butter
  • 2.5 ml (1/2 tsp) caraway seed
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) whole-grain mustard
  • 180 ml (3/4 cup) 15% cream
  • 150 g (5 oz) Saputo Mozzarellissima cheese, shredded
  • 15 g (1 oz) Saputo grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, cook the parsnips in the milk with a little salt and pepper until they are just tender and the milk is almost completely gone. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F).
  3. In a skillet, sweat the leek in the butter without browning and add to the bowl with the parsnips. Add the caraway seed and mustard, toss gently and transfer the mixture to a gratin dish.
  4. Pour the cream over the vegetables, then sprinkle with the Mozzarellissima and Parmesan cheeses.
  5. Bake in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbly.
