1/2 daikon, sliced thinly
1 onion, sliced thinly2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp chopped parsley
2 tbsp chopped chives
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
250ml double cream
100g cheddar, grated

Soak sliced daikon radish in cold, salted water for 20 mins. Pat dry with paper towels.
Preheat the oven to 160C. Arrange the sliced daikon in layers in a casserole dish.
Heat a little oil in a saucepan, add the onions and cook until transparent, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic powder and pepper and stir, just until bubbling. Add the cream and stir occasionally until heated through, about 5 mins. Add in the parsley and chives. Remove from the heat and add the cheese. Stir until the cheese is melted. Pour the sauce over the daikon.
Bake, covered, for 45 mins, or until cheese is golden and bubbly. Sprinkle with the Parmesan and bake, uncovered, for another 10-20 mins until golden.
