Rosemary, Leek & Potato Pie
My father used to make potatoes au gratin for dinner all the time when I was a little girl, as it was often just the two of us enjoying our meals together. This is a tribute to one of my dad’s favorite dinners, with a few more “grown-up” flavors added in for good measure. Serve with a bowl of soup for a delicious, well-rounded meal.
—3 pounds (1.36 kg) thin-skinned potatoes, unpeeled and very thinly sliced (about 1/ 8 inch [3 mm] thick) into rounds
—4 cloves garlic, minced, divided
—2 tablespoons (5 g) minced fresh rosemary sprigs
—1 leek, white and light green part only, cleaned well and thinly sliced
—1/2 cup (65 g) nutritional yeast
—7 tablespoons (100 g) nondairy margarine, melted
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (200 degrees C, or gas mark 6). Lightly grease an 8-inch (20.3 cm)-springform pan using margarine or nonstick spray.
Arrange the potatoes in one even layer so that they cover the bottom of the pan, overlapping as necessary with no gaps. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt, about one-fourth of the minced garlic, and a little fresh rosemary. Arrange a few rings of leeks (distributing evenly) on top of the potatoes.
Dust with nutritional yeast until all the potatoes are well covered and then drizzle with a little melted margarine (a little more than 1 tablespoon [14 g]).
Cover with a second thin layer of potatoes, then salt, garlic, and rosemary, and then a few more rings of leek, and finally nutritional yeast and a drizzle of margarine. Repeat the layering process again and again until all the ingredients have been used. Add a last layer of potatoes around the rim for an extra-special presentation. You should end up with 4 or 5 layers of potatoes.
Bake for about 1 hour and 5 minutes or until a butter knife easily slides through all layers of potatoes. If the potatoes begin to brown quickly, cover lightly with foil during the last 20 minutes of cooking.
Let cool briefly and then carefully remove the springform rim.
Slice carefully into wedges and serve immediately.

Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats is filled with great eats for everyone (not just those who are vegan and/or gluten-free). We've tried several recipes from this cookbook and have yet to be disappointed; every dish so far has been absolutely delicious. Each recipe has a beautiful photograph to accompany it and nutritional information as well. The recipes are pretty easy to make, not intimidating, and everyone we've served dishes to (some being friends and family who weren't vegan or gluten-free) has raved about them, too. There really is something for everyone in this cookbook!
Everything I have made from this cookbook has been ridiculously delicious! I love that there is a color photo of every recipe as well as clear, concise instructions for the novice in the kitchen like myself. I am newly vegan and keep getting asked by my friends and family if it has been a hard transition, not with this cookbook! It makes cooking fun and easy, you will not be disappointed.
