Salsify Gratin

Salsify Gratin recipe.

Tantalise your supple mouth piece. And, sensualise your bite.

Baked Salsify Gratin with crushed yellow mustard, bitter parsley, earthy cinnamon, onion, garlic and a hint of lemon.

This dish will overthrow any belief that vegan food can’t be simple to put together.

Make this:

  • When you fancy something lush to go with your Sunday Roast
  • When the rain is pelting it down and need a little luxury comfort food
  • When dinner party galores beckon and you need a side to impress and dribble over

Salsify Gratin was inspired when I’d spotted salisfy at my local farmer’s market and wanted to bake a little something special for holiday season.

Salsify Gratin is vegan, paleo and gluten free.
