Three Layer Vegetable Loaf

Cassate de Legumes Orleanaise


Three Layer Vegetable Loaf The region where loaf of Arc came from has a rich repertoire of vegetable terrines such as this one, which is as good to eat as it is to look at.

1-1/2 lbs. (750 g) green or string beans,
   ends removed
1-1/2 lbs. (750 g) leeks, washed,
   trimmed, and sliced in
1-in. (2.5-cm) chunks
8 fresh tarragon leaves
8 chives, snipped
1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
8 oz. (250 g) cream cheese
6 eggs
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Pinch of grated nutmeg


Cook the carrots, beans, and leeks separately for 15 minutes each. Drain well. In a blender or food processor, purée the carrots with the tarragon, then set aside in a bowl. purée the beans with the chives and set aside in another bowl. purée the leeks with the coriander and caraway seeds and place in a third bowl.

Beat one-third of the cheese into each mixture, then add 2 beaten eggs to each. Mix well. Season to taste.

Grease a large loaf pan. Place the leek purée in the base of the pan, then the carrot purée, and top with the bean purée. Place in a water bath or bain marie and bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for about 1-1/4 hours.
