Vegan Endive Gratinées

[Vegan Endive Gratinéed with Cheese]

...they had some pretty endive at the grocery store...so...as it really is a 'winter' vegetable...

...we thought we'd give the 'sauced and browned' endive recipe a go...
...you start out making a VEGAN SAUCE BÉCHAMEL
...and then you make the Braised Endive...and put that in a dish buttered with Earth Balance...
...then you pour the Bechamel sauce over...
...and grate some vegan swiss cheese...we used Daiya Swiss slices and folded them up and grated them on top...
...ran it under the broiler for a few minutes...until it was bubbly hot and browned...
...this makes an elegant and delicious starter course...creamy and delicious...

Substitutions:

Vegan butter for the butter - we used Earth Balance
Vegan milk for the bechamel
Vegan cheese - we used Daiya Swiss Style Slices
