Grate (using a food processor with a grating blade or option to do by hand) the squash, carrots, courgettes and celeriac. Finely chop the onion and leek. Slice the bacon into cubes. Fry the bacon in 1 tablespoon of olive oil on a medium heat for 2 minutes. Add the onion, fry for 1 further minute. Add the leek for a further 2 minutes and finally add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Total of 6 minutes. Transfer to a large saucepan or use 2 regular 16 - 20 inch saucepans. If using 2 regular saucepans add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the dry pan. Split the bacon mix between the 2 pans and add the grated squash, carrots, celeriac, and courgettes. Fry for 5 minutes. If using a larger pan you may need to cook for a little longer until the vegetables are soft. Add the kale and parsley, mix well. Stir through the cream cheese, salt, pepper and paprika. Place into a baking tray (28 x 20) and spread to the edges. Top with sun blushed or sun dried tomatoes and sprinkle with cheddar and a touch more paprika. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until the cheese melts and is golden on top. To store, refrigerate for up to 5 days.
