rinne recently turned me on to
by former athenian, tamar adler. it is a really inspiring and intimate approach to food. a couple of years ago i read the book
and i loved it so much. this is the type of book i have been craving.
the other day we made lunch out at our friends mandy and steve's farm. i brought along a basket of fresh vegetables that i picked up from woodland gardens and this book. this gratin recipe was a simple one and sounded delicious......and it was.
give it a try!
inspired by tamar adler's recipe for greens gratin
2 cups chard, sauteed in olive oil, salted
1 bunch of spring onions, cut up and sauteed in olive oil
1 cup bechamel sauce (1 Tbsp butter, 1 Tbsp flour, 1 cup milk, 1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan)
-cook the greens and onions separately
-melt butter and add flour heating mixture until mixed
-add the milk and stir over medium heat for 20-25 minutes
-mix sauce with greens and onions and put in a small oven proof baking dish
-sprinkle some more parmesan on top
-bake at 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until it is bubbling
