Love this recipe from my husband, it is different than normal Gratin as it has some flavor of spices and the binding from eggs not flour, needs less butter and hence it is lighter as well.
1 small carrot ,finely chopped.
Some Green peas.(handful)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.
1/4rth Red chilli Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder.
1/4rth cumin Powder.
One teaspoon of olive oil.
1 teaspoon salt.
1 teaspoon lemon juice.
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 cups low fat cream
1/2 cup freshly grated cheese (your choice ,I used mozzarella)
2 portions of cheese (la vache qui rit) ( optional)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Cook the cauliflower florets ,pieces carrot and green peas in a large pot of boiling salted water for 6 to 8 minutes, until tender but still firm. Drain .
Add some lemon juice , salt,pepper,chilli powder,cumin powder,garlic powder,, few drops of olive oil and mix well in vegetables and keep aside.
In a bowl add cream,eggs and mix well.
Grease the baking tray with butter, place the cauliflower florets,carrot,green peas in it.
Add the cheese portions on it, pour the mixture of cream and eggs .Cover it with grated cheese.
Allow it to bake for 15-20 minutes and check if the cheese on top looked golden now.
