Here are some tips for making this easy healthy dish

  1. Fresh and seasonal veggies
    If you use fresh vegetables, your dish will be better and tastier.
  2. White or red potatoes
    You can use either red or white potatoes (if they’re white, don’t use the ones for frying).
  3. Grate your own cheese
    For a good gratin, grate your own cheese. You’ll find that it melts and bakes much better. You can also mix different cheeses and it’ll be even better.

Step by step on how to make these Potatoes and veggies au gratin

This recipe is very simple but takes a little time, especially baking time.

First, put 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan. Heat it over medium heat and once the butter has melted, add 3 tablespoons of corn flour. Mix it well with a couple of sticks and when you see it starts to turn brown, add about 350-400 ml of milk first (you can add more if you see it’s too thick).

Sprinkle a little salt, pepper, and nutmeg on top. Stir constantly over medium heat until the béchamel starts to thicken. If you want a more liquid béchamel, add more milk and stir for a few more minutes.

Next, peel and slice the potatoes. Cut the zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes into very thin slices. *Especially slice the eggplant very thinly.

Put a few tablespoons of béchamel sauce in a baking dish and spread it well. Add the potato slices and cover them with some béchamel sauce and grated cheese. Bake at 180ºC for about 10-15 minutes (the oven is preheated).

When you see that the cheese is browned, take the baking dish out of the oven. Add the sliced eggplant and alternate the zucchini and tomato on top. Spread the béchamel sauce over the vegetables and then the grated cheese on top.

Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 180º. When you see that the cheese is browned and the vegetables are cooked, take the dish out of the oven. Decorate it with some fresh basil leaves and serve it hot. You’ll see that the two layers of gratinated cheese are delicious together with the vegetables.

If you want to shorten the cooking time, cut the vegetables and potatoes into very thin slices.

FAQ

Is it possible to freeze the whole dish?

I don’t recommend it, this dish is meant to be eaten the same day.

Can sweet potato or pumpkin be substituted for the potato?

Yes, of course! If you slice the sweet potato, it tastes just as good (the cooking time doesn’t change much).

You can make a vegan béchamel sauce with plant-based milk like almond or oat milk.

Receta fácil y deliciosa de patatas con verduras y mucho queso.

Ingredients

  • 4 patatas (aprox)
  • 1 berenjena
  • 1 calabacín
  • 2 o 3 tomates
  • 500 ml de leche (aprox)
  • 3 cucharadas de mantequilla
  • 3 cucharadas de harina de maíz
  • Queso rallado al gusto
  • Sal
  • Pimienta
  • Nuez moscada

Instructions

  1. Primero en un cazo incorpora 3 cucharadas de mantequilla. Calienta a temperatura media y una vez que la mantequilla se haya derretido, añade 3 cucharadas de harina de maíz. Mezcla bien con unas barillas y cuando veas que empieza a dorarse incorpora primero unos 500 ml de leche (luego puedes añadir más si ves que está muy espesa) .
  2. Espolvorea un poco de sal, pimienta y nuez moscada. Con el fuego a temperatura media, remueve constantemente hasta que veas que empieza a espesar, si te gusta una bechamel más líquida añade más leche y sigue removiendo durante unos minutos.
  3. A continuación, pela las patatas y córtalas en rodajas. Corta el calabacín, la berenjena, los tomates en rodajas muy finitas. *Sobretodo corta la berenjena en rodajas muy finitas.
  4. En una fuente de horno añade un par de cucharadas de bechamel y espárcela bien. Incorpora las rodajas de patata y cúbrelas con un poco de bechamel y queso rallado. Hornea a 180ª durante unos 10- 15 minutos (con el horno previemente precalentado).
  5. Cuando veas que el queso ya se ha gratinado retira la fuente del horno. Añade la berenjena en rodajas y encima alterna el calabacín con el tomate. Esparce salsa bechamel por encima de las verduras y luego el queso rallado por encima.
  6. Hornea unos 15-20 minutos a 180º . Cuando veas que el queso ya se ha gratinado y las verduras están hechas, retira la fuente del horno. Decora con unas hojas de albahaca fresca y sírvelo caliente. Ya verás que las dos capas de queso gratinado junto con las verduras queda delicioso.

Notes

Reduce el tiempo de horneado cortando las patatas y verduras en rodajas muy finitas.

Si quieres hacer una versión vegana, sustituye la leche de la bechamel por bebida de almendras o de avena. Y utiliza también un queso vegano
