Big ‘Ole Happy Two Potato and Fennel Gratin

Today’s Abel and Cole delivery came with Fennel in it, so I decided on making a lovely Gratin with layers of Potato and Fennel. I remembered that I had ordered some sweet Potato for another dish. I decided to use it with this instead.

Ready to go into the oven!

It’s too easy to throw cheese on top of everything. I am going to keep mine Vegan and cook this slowly and let the flavours work. I almost wish I had added some mushroom to the Vegan version and infact I might just do that next time.
A photo of little ones ‘cheese on top’ version is below. I had dished his portion up before I took a pic!

What you need…
750 g of Potato sliced into fine circles
1 large Sweet Potato sliced into fine circles
1 onion
4 cloves of garlic chopped
400mls of Soya cream
Grated cheese to sprinkle on top (optional)
Salt and Pepper

What you do……..
Oil the pan so it does not stick
Layer slices of potato and then slices of Fennel and sprinkle some garlic.
Next, a layer of Sweet Potato. And repeat.
Pour soya cream over and season with Salt and Pepper.
Wrap in tin foil and put in the oven on low for 2 hours. Or cook on a high oven for 20 mins and then turn down and serve when everything is cooked through.
We served ours with Vegan sausages and a Green Salad.
