Wash produce before use

1

Prep the ingredients

Heat the oven to 400ºF.
  • Scrub the parsnips. Cut in half lengthwise and then into ¼-inch-thick pieces.
  • Peel the shallot and cut into thin slices.
  • Wipe the mushrooms clean with a damp paper towel. Cut into ¼-inch-thick slices.
  • Rinse the quinoa in a bowl or fine-mesh strainer.

2

Cook the vegetables

In a pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the parsnips, shallots, and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the parsnips are just tender, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the spice blend, and toast until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the quinoa and peas, and cook until the quinoa is lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.
Stir in 2 to 3 tablespoons water and remove from the heat. Transfer to a bowl and let cool slightly. Meanwhile, prepare the gratin.

3

Assemble the gratin

In a bowl, mix the egg, cream, and ¼ cup water to make a custard. Season generously with salt and pepper, and mix until well combined.
Combine the custard with the vegetable mixture. Transfer to a lightly oiled baking dish and cook in the oven until well browned and the custard is set, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool, 5 to 10 minutes. While the gratin bakes, prepare the salad.

4

Make the salad

In a bowl, combine the arugula with the feta, vinegar, and 1 tablespoon oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper and toss to coat.

5

Serve

Transfer the gratin to individual plates and serve with the salad.
