Wash produce before use
Prep and cook the kale
- Strip the kale leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
While the kale cooks, prepare the béchamel sauce.
Make the béchamel sauce
- Peel and finely chop the shallots.
- Strip the sage leaves from the stems; finely chop the leaves. Set aside half for the panko topping.
- In a large bowl, drizzle the butternut squash with 1 to 2 tablespoons oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat.
Slowly whisk in the vegetable broth and cream, bring to a boil, and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the Gruyère and half the sage, stirring until the cheese is melted. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Assemble and bake the gratin
While the gratin bakes, prepare the panko topping.
Make the panko topping; finish the gratin
When the squash is tender, uncover the dish and sprinkle the panko topping evenly over the gratin. Continue to bake, uncovered, until the gratin is bubbling at the edges and golden brown on top, 10 to 15 minutes longer. Remove from the oven and let stand for at least 5 minutes before serving or keep warm in a 150°F oven for up to 20 minutes.
