This is a wonderful recipe, full of flavour. Used the little bit of celariac we had in the garden and made up the weight with extra sweet potatoes. I made this and a sausage casserole for a bonfire night supper party as we had a couple of vegetarians but the meat eaters ate it as well and everyone loved it,

Not mad about sweet potatoes so used butternut squash and added some button mushrooms. Went with half-fat creme fraiche, mixed herbs and omitted the flaked almonds in the topping because that's what I had. All worked well and everyone enjoyed a meat-free Friday.

I will use Fromage Frais instead of creme fraiche, the fat free variety. I use this in other recipes as an alternative and it works fine. You could also try natural yogurt, that also works well.

Sounds delicious but can anything be used as a substitute for creme fraiche?

Very nice! I used butternut squash instead of celeriac and a sprinkling of dried thyme, halved the recipe for two of us, and served with fried bacon and bread rolls. Do watch not to overcook the veg though as it can become a bit mashy.
