Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C).

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Sauté onion, garlic, vegetables and fennel seeds for 20 minutes or until onions and garlic are golden. Salt and pepper to taste and transfer to an ovenproof dish.

In a bowl, combine cheese, melted butter, breadcrumbs and parsley. Salt and pepper to taste.

Top vegetables evenly with cheese mixture. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until vegetables are soft and cheese topping is golden and crusty.

Tips

This quick-to-prepare recipe can be made with whatever vegetables are on hand. Makes an excellent side dish for fish or poultry, or add cubed, cooked meat or poultry to vegetables before baking.

Note: The croustade may be prepared ahead and baked or reheated just before serving.

For a change of taste, use Canadian Swiss, Gouda, Medium Cheddar or Provolone.
