'The Kitchn' recently put together a recipe for a delicious vegetable gratin made from a hearty combination of leeks, mushrooms and parsnips. As temperatures begin to drop and days become darker, many people turn to warm and hearty comfort foods. This flavorful vegetarian dish provides a tasty way to get through the darkest days of winter.

Gratin is a French dish that is made by browning ingredients in the oven or under the grill. This recipe offers a vegetarian interpretation of the dish by combining seasonal ingredients such as parsnips and leeks, with white wine and fresh herbs. The parsnips have a herbaceous flavor and a tender texture that is perfect for baking. When paired with white wine and herbs such as thyme, the vegetables take on a rich and flavorful taste. The entire dish is then finished with heavy cream and Parmesan cheese to give it a creamy texture.

This hearty dish can be served as a tasty holiday side dish or as a delicious accompaniment to Sunday dinner.
