Greens and Red Cabbage Gratin

Submitted by: MAKALANI22


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 pound greens, such as chard, beet greens or kale, stemmed and cleaned in two changes of water
    1 pound red cabbage, finely chopped
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    2 large garlic cloves, minced or pressed
    Salt and freshly ground pepper

    2 eggs
    1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
    1/2 cup rice, preferably a short grain rice like arborio, cooked
    [1 oz. goat cheese/ 5 wedges laughing cow] used instead of 1/2 c. gruyere cheese shredded
    2 tablespoons breadcrumbs

Directions

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Fill a bowl with ice water. When the water comes to a boil, salt generously and add the greens. Blanch for about two minutes, until tender and bright green. Transfer to the ice water, then drain and squeeze out water. Chop coarsely.

2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Oil a 2-quart gratin. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large, heavy nonstick skillet over medium heat, and add the onion. Cook, stirring often, until tender and translucent, about five minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for another minute, until fragrant. Stir in the cabbage and about 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, for 10 minutes, until the cabbage is tender and fragrant but still has some texture and color. Stir in the chopped blanched greens and cheese (mix into the veggie mixture). Add salt and pepper to taste.

3. Beat the eggs in a bowl, and stir in the cooked vegetables, parsley and rice. Stir together well and scrape into the baking dish. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top, and drizzle on the remaining olive oil [the top oil really isn't necessary].

Bake 30 to 40 minutes, until firm and browned on the top. Serve hot or warm.

Yield: Serves four to six.

Advance preparation: This can be made a day ahead and reheated. Alternatively, prepare the vegetables through step 2 a day ahead, and assemble the gratin the next day. It will keep for four or five days in the refrigerator.

Number of Servings: 6
