  1. Preheat your oven to 200C.

  3. While the veggies roast, gently fry the onion, fennel, garlic and chilli until softened then add the creme fraiche and the stock. Bring to the boil to thicken. Season to taste.
  4. Take out the roasted veg then pour the sauce over the veg. Scatter over the Southern Style Coating and cheese and bake for approx. 25 minutes until the top is golden and the veg and sauce a bubbling underneath. Serve.
