Roasted Butternut Gratin with Turnips and Greens

From Garden To Table

We are coming to the end of our winter garden and the cold bins that we keep our potatoes, onions, and squash are getting down very low. This is about the time I really try to use those things up because the spring garden vegetables will be coming on very soon. Today I am using a Butternut Squash from the cold bin and I gathered some Turnips Greens and Collards to make this wonderful Roasted Butternut and Greens into a lovely Gratin. Winter Greens and Roasted Vegetables combined in a well seasoned gratin, a delicious main or side dish.

  We love this recipe and sure hope that you enjoy it!

Ingredients
4 cups butternut squash, cubed
3 cups turnips, cubed
1 large yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
8 cups turnip greens and collards, mixed and chopped
6 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Herbs de Provence
1-1/2  teaspoons nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 ounces Gruyere Cheese, grated
Fresh Radish, sliced, for garnish
Directions
Prepare the butternut squash and turnips and greens.
Place the cubed squash and turnips on a roasting pan and drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil. Toss the vegetables to coat, then sprinkle 1 tablespoon Herbs de Provence, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg over the vegetables, then toss to fully coat.
Roast in a 400 degree oven for 25 minutes until tender.  Remove from the oven and set aside.
In a heavy skillet heat 4 tablespoons olive oil then saute the minced garlic and onions until the onions are clear.
Add the greens and 1/4 cup water stir until wilted. When the greens are just wilted remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon nutmeg and 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar. Make sure the seasons are mixed in the vegetables very good.
Pour the greens and onions mix in a large mixing bowl, then add the roasted butternut and turnips, gently mix the ingredients being careful not to break up the cubed squash and turnips.
Mix 3 slightly beaten eggs with 1/2 the cheese.  Add the cheese and egg mixture to the vegetables and mix well.
Pour the mixture into a oil sprayed 9X13 baking dish.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, until the cheese is starting to bubble.
Garnish with fresh radish.
Enjoy!

    1. Hi Kate,
      It would be great with Spinach or Kale either or both. I think you could use your favorite green and it would be delicious. Most of the flavor is coming from the Butternut and Turnip. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you enjoy the recipe. Have a fantastic day!

    I'm kind of jealous as you don't buy these veggies, you go to the garden and pick whatever you need :)
