For the fondue sauce

  • 100ml/3½ fl oz white wine
  • 175g raclette cheese, grated or chopped if bought ready sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/gas 7/fan 200C. Drizzle half the oil over the base of a large gratin dish or medium roasting tin. Tip in the squash, onion, cauliflower, garlic and season with salt and pepper. Toss everything together roughly and drizzle with the remaining oil. Put the vegetables in the oven and bake for 15 minutes uncovered, stirring half way through.

  2. Stir the vegetables again, arrange the tomatoes on top, and roast for another 15-20 minutes, until lightly toasted.

  3. To make the sauce, pour the wine into a small pan and bring to the boil. Remove from the heat, stir in the cheese and cornflour mixture then the kirsch or brandy if using. Put the pan back onto a low heat and stir everything together until the cheese melts into the liquid and forms a runny, silky sauce. Serve the vegetables with the sauce poured over.

I don't use cornflour with the veg either. Just simply roast the veg in a bit of oil, once cooked, pile it high on a plate with a couple of bowls of sauce either side & they all dive in!

My three kids absolutely LOVE this and it's a fun way to eat veg. I buy a tub of cheese sauce making life even simpler and maybe not so calorific.

WOW, is that really right?? 711 calories per serving?! However big are the servings?!? Is there any other cheese that would work as well as the raclette, as this is hard to buy?
