  • 1 bunch leek (white and light green parts only)
  • 4 carrots cut in large chunks
  • 1/2 cauliflower cut in florets
  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts halved
  • 1 lb small potatoes peeled
  • 3 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 3 fresh parsley sprigs
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 oz Canadian Tilsiter cheese or other Swiss-style cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz raclette cheese or other Swiss-style cheese, shredded

Method

Cut leeks in half lengthwise; wash well. Cut into 3-inch (8 cm) lengths, keeping layers together. Arrange in 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish along with carrots, cauliflower, brussels sprouts and potatoes. With kitchen string, tie thyme, parsley and bay leaf into bundle; nestle into vegetables.

In skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; sauté onion until golden, about 8 minutes. Stir in salt, pepper and 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) water; bring to boil. Pour over vegetables; cover loosely with foil.

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until vegetables are tender, 45 to 55 minutes. Uncover dish; sprinkle cheese evenly over vegetables. Bake until cheese is melted, bubbly and beginning to brown, about 15 minutes.
