These vegetarian gratin recipes are a great way to round out a menu, whether you are observing a healthier lifestyle full of fresh produce, or are looking for creative ways to cook during the Lenten season. These meatless gratins are considered vegetarian, not vegan, because most of them include butter in the preparation. To make the recipes vegan, simply substitute light olive oil or vegan butter substitute for the butter and vegan cheese for the traditional dairy cheese. The flavors will be slightly altered, but the final results will be very similar to the original recipes.
