Vegetable Dauphinoise


  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Place a small pot over medium to low heat and add the heavy cream.
  • Add the minced garlic, salt, pepper and thyme.
  • Heat for 7-9 minutes, until the cream comes to a boil and remove from heat.
  • Pass the mixture through a sieve into a bowl and set aside to cool.
  • Fill a pot halfway with water, place over high heat and bring to a boil.
  • In the meantime, slice the potatoes into 0.5 cm rounds with a sharp knife. You can also use a mandolin to make sure all of the slices are equally thick.
  • Transfer to a bowl.
  • Peel the carrots and cut them lengthwise into 0.5 cm slices.
  • Transfer to a separate bowl.
  • Peel the beetroots and slice them into 0.5 cm rounds.
  • Transfer to a separate bowl.
  • Add the potatoes to the pot of boiling water first. Boil for 5-8 minutes, until they soften. When ready, remove with a slotted spoon and place back in their bowl.
  • In the same pot of boiling water, add the carrots and boil for 5-8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place back in their bowl.
  • Last, add the beetroots to the pot and boil for 5-8 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place back in their bowl.
  • Make sure you boil the vegetables in this orders (potatoes-carrots-beetroots). If you reverse the order the water will turn beetroot red and so will your vegetables.
  • In a 20x30 cm ovenproof baking dish, add the beetroot rounds one next to the other, until the bottom of the dish is completely covered.
  • Spread 2-3 tablespoons of the heavy cream over them and then add 1/3 of the grated parmesan.
  • Next, add a layer of carrot rounds in the same way as the beetroots and cover with 2-3 tablespoons of heavy cream and another 1/3 of the grated parmesan.
  • Last, add the potato rounds in the same manner and cover with the remaining heavy cream and grated parmesan.
  • Dampen a sheet of parchment paper and cover the baking dish.
  • Add the rice or beans for weight and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • Then remove the parchment and bake for another 10 minutes, until the potatoes turn golden.
  • When ready, remove from oven and set aside to cool for 30-40 minutes at room temperature.
  • Serve.
  • The cooler the dish is, the easier it will be to cut into nice pieces without destroying the layers of vegetables.
