Leftover vegetables gratin

I had a bunch of leftover vegetables from the last week of cooking and a chicken. The chicken got salt and pepper, and my mother’s recipe for roast chicken: open oven, insert chicken. The vegetables took more work.

The usual suspects, dried cayenne chilies, garlic and olive oil to start.

gratin2

Then onions and mushrooms…

gratin3

Then the rest, carrots, parsnips, turnips, and Brussels sprouts.

gratin4

Salt and pepper, then a cover to get them all hot.

gratin5

Then into the gratin dish.

gratin6

And something to go on top to turn brown…

gratin8

Ready for the oven.

gratin9

45 minutes later (I covered it with foil for the first 20 minutes.)

Wish that there were a few strips of bacon on the leftover list… but still pretty yummy!
