Potato gratin is one of my favourite side dishes, which I originally used to enjoy alongside any hearty main as a tasty side dish.
The only type I’ve known well was the dairy-containing version, this veganised potato gratin recipe gives it a run for its money.
How do you veganise potato gratin?
It’s rather easy, instead of using cream, butter and cheese that would typically be dairy-based, opt for the vegan alternative.
This way you can tailor for a vegan, someone intolerant to lactose or anyone else avoiding dairy.
What does potato gratin pair well with?
Potato gratin pairs beautifully with other vegan mains and sides, such as lentil stew and our jerk portobello recipe.
You can also enjoy potato gratin with an array of foods from quinoa to veggies, such as our steamed broccoli and garlic green beans recipe.
Is potato gratin good enough for its own meal?
The way to answer this would be to visualise whether you’d find it acceptable to eat only roast potatoes as a meal.
In my case, I prefer potato gratin as a side dish, as opposed to its own standalone meal.
Is potato gratin French?
Potato gratin is originally French, translating to “with a crust”; for the top creamy/cheesy layer you get when you perfectly roast your potato gratin in the oven.
This recipe is great for bringing to barbecues, pot lucks, makes a great dinner party food; is also a kid-friendly side dish to enjoy in place of regular roast potatoes.
