Vegetarian Gratin Recipe

Serves 8


2 tbsp olive oil

900g Jerusalem artichokes, thinly sliced

50ml vegetable stock

75g butter

4 shallots, finely diced

2 garlic cloves, chopped

2 bunches silverbeet, stalks removed, thinly sliced

900g sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced

150g gruyere, grated

150g parmesan, grated


Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add artichokes and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add stock and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.

Heat 25g butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add shallots and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add silverbeet and sauté for another 5 minutes, or until silverbeet becomes soft and tender. Remove from heat and drain in a colander; squeeze silverbeet to remove excess liquid and set aside until ready to use.

Butter bottom and sides of a 22cm x 30cm ovenproof dish. Place a layer of sweet potato, a layer of artichokes, and a layer of silverbeet in the dish, dotting each layer with remaining butter and seasoning with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Repeat layering, finishing with a layer of sweet potatoes.

Top with grated gruyere and parmesan; cover with aluminium foil that has been brushed with butter to prevent cheese from sticking. Bake for 1 hour, or until tender when pierced with a sharp knife. Remove foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until golden.
