Green Vegetable Gratin with Crunchy Carrot Topping

Green Vegetable Gratin

 

This meal would be a great one to have again in the summer when we have our vegetable garden.  You could really use any vegetables you wanted.  It was pretty simple to make and looks very elegant!  Everyone really liked this one, even the kids.  My only complaint is that it doesn’t have a lot of staying power.  I was super hungry again at 9 last night! Update:  I made this again and added 2 cups of white beans to give it a boost of protein.  It worked really well.  I changed the recipe to include the beans, you could leave them out if you wish.
