Savoy Cabbage Gratin

Author: Canadian Living

This makes a savoury autumn side dish alongside Bavarian-style sausages or roast turkey. It's also hearty enough to be a vegetarian main course accompanied by crusty bread and a salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 savoy cabbage (about 2 lb/1 kg)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 leek thinly sliced (white and light green parts only)
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup 10% cream
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
Topping:
  • 3/4 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup shredded Gruyère cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme chives or parsley

Method

Quarter cabbage lengthwise; cut out and discard core. Thinly slice cabbage crosswise; set aside.

In large pot or Dutch oven, melt butter over medium heat; cover and cook leek and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened but not browned, about 10 minutes.

Add cabbage, stock, salt, pepper and nutmeg; cook, covered and stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 15 minutes.

Stir in flour; cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Stir in cream and bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Spread in greased 12-inch (2 L) oval baking dish.

Topping: Combine bread crumbs, cheese, butter and thyme; sprinkle over cabbage mixture. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours. Bring to room temperature to bake.)

Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until bubbling and topping is golden, about 20 minutes.
