This ain’t your grandma’s gratin. While we love a classic example filled with potatoes, cream, and cheese, this vegetable-focused dish has won our hearts. Tender white beans, toothsome barley, tangy tomatoes, and sweet artichokes come together under a crispy blanket of panko breadcrumbs and Gruyere cheese. Serve this as a filling vegetarian entree or a multifaceted side dish alongside chicken or lamb chops.
