Potato Leek Gratin

  • Author: Misfits Market


Cheesy gratins are a staple at holiday dining tables as a side that’s sure to please. Swap in vegan butter and vegan cheese (any melting cheese will do!) to make a lighter, vegan-friendly dish.


  • 2 pounds red potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 2 small leeks, washed and cut into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup Gruyere, grated
  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 stalks of scallions, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. In a large skillet, add butter and garlic and bring to medium heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until garlic starts to brown.
  3. Add flour and whisk until it thickens into a wet “dough.”
  4. Stir in cheese, then add coconut milk and salt. Turn off the heat and whisk until combined.
  5. Add potato and leek slices and gently toss until everything is coated with the cheese mixture.
  6. Transfer to a 9-inch x 9-inch pan (or equivalent) and bake for 30 minutes until bubbling and golden.
  7. Top with sliced scallions, let cool, and serve!
