A hearty and delicious bake which is easy to assemble.

• 300g (10oz) cherry tomatoes
• A few knobs of butter, plus extra for greasing
• 4-5 thyme sprigs
• 100g (3½oz) Gruyère, grated
• 100g (3½oz) Parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), grated
• 250ml (9fl oz) pot double cream
• 200ml (7fl oz) vegetable or chicken stock
• 2 red onions, roughly sliced
• 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Generously grease a large, deep, ovenproof dish.
2. Mix the Gruyère with half of the grated Parmesan, then mix the double cream with the stock.
3. Arrange the new potatoes, tomatoes, shallots, garlic, thyme sprigs in the ovenproof dish.
4. Pour the cream mixture over the vegetables. Sprinkle over the remaining Parmesan, then add a few knobs of butter, and cover with foil.
