Broccoli and parsnip casserole.

Once again I participated in the Foodblogswap. This time I got to chose a recipe from Boor and Bart blog called Domaine Malpas., which is also the name of their small-scale residence in the Aveyron, southern France. Twice a week they have a “Table d’hôtes” at their residence, which means that their guests can sit down at “their” dining table,where Boor serves a 4-course meal. Since a lot of guests asked for the recipes of the delicious meals Boor serves, they decided to start a blog. It is a wonderful blog with a lot of great recipes, and I sure am gonna make a few more of them in the future. But for the Foodblogswap I chose this savoury casserole.

This vegetarian traybake makes a hearty meal using just one roasting dish. Roquefort is rich, creamy and sharp, tangy, salty in flavour , but if you do not like this strong aroma of this cheese, you can easily replace it by a milder one.
As it is spring, I added wild garlic to the dish, but since this plant is native to temperate regions of Europe, it is not widely available. But it can easily be replaced by a garlic clove.
