This Cabbage Gratin is basically a fancy Mac and Cheese with cabbage instead of noodles. This requires making a Bechamel Sauce and seasoned bread crumbs. Infusing the milk with sage adds an extra depth of flavor. This comes to us via Saskatchewan, a late 1800s oceanic voyage from Romania and the love of an adventurous young couple striking out to find their own path. This dish is filled with goodness as well as a compact history of Mimi's family.
With all of these fresh, vibrant vegetables on our plates it's easy to forget that winter is on the way along with a diet laden with meat, potatoes and noodles. Terrie's Zingy Eggplant and Tomato Relish will put away the fresh flavors of summer and enliven your palate come the depths of winter. It just stores in a jar in the fridge and will last many weeks.
