Winter Greens Gratin
Makes 6-8 servings
1 lb organic Italian sausage
6 clusters of collard leaves, kale or swiss chard, inner stems are removed and cut into ribs
1 cup organic chicken or vegetable leaves
¼ cup of Parmesan cheese
¼ cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons almonds, red rice or gluten-free flour
1 teaspoon organic butter
2 tablespoons sea salt
1 teaspoon pepper
- Turn the oven to 375ºF and place an 8 inch casserole plate or gratin plate and set aside.
- Mix sausage in a large saucepan over medium heat until done, breaking with a wooden spoon as you go. When done, remove the sausage from the heat, and set aside. In the same pot, add the extra virgin olive oil, and add the vegetable stock in batches until tossed and cooked.
- Add the broth and cover the pot for 5-10 minutes until all the water has evaporated. Remove any excess water if it does not evaporate. Add the flour and sausage to the veggie mixture and stir well to combine. Pour the green mixture and sausage into your cooking bowl, pour the top with the pieces of butter, pour the cream on top, and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook for 30 minutes.
- Remove the lid and cook for the last minute to get the golden dough.
