Potato, Avocado & Soy Milk Gratin

Potato, Avocado & Soy Milk Gratin

Floury new potatoes and a rich avocado sauce go exceptionally well together in this dish. This is a quick gratin that doesn't need to be baked in the oven.

Ingredients: 1 serving

New potatoes
2-3 medium
Well-ripened avocado
Bacon, ham, etc.
1-2 slices
Salt, pepper
as needed
Grated mozzarella cheese
as needed
Soy milk
150 ml
Olive oil (for stir-frying)
small amount


1. Wash the new potatoes, and boil with the skins. Cut the onion into 5 mm thick slices, and cut the bacon (or ham) into 1 cm strips.
2. Peel the avocado and remove the pit. Cut into bite-sized pieces (don't worry if they crumble slightly).
3. Heat some olive oil in a saucepan and stir-fry the onion, then add the bacon and continue to cook.
4. When the onion and bacon have cooked through, add the avocado. Gradually add the soy milk, breaking up the avocado with a wooden spatula as you go.
5. Season with salt and pepper. When the mixture comes to a boil, turn off the heat.
6. Cut the boiled new potatoes into 5 mm thick slices. Line the bottom of a gratin dish with the sliced potatoes, and pour over the Step 5 sauce.
7. Sprinkle some grated cheese on top and grill until the cheese is golden brown.

Story Behind this Recipe

I needed a way to use up and over-ripe avocado, so I used it to make sauce for gratin.
