Gorgeous roast vegetables

Roasted Vegetables

Serves 6

  • 350 g raw beetroot, scrubbed clean and quartered

  • 800 g mixed-colour carrot, peeled and halved lengthways

  • 800 g Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and halved

  • 350 g parsnips, peeled and halved

  • 6 tablespoon of duck fat

  • a few sprigs of fresh rosemary, leaves picked

  • sea salt

  • freshly ground black pepper

Divide the veg between a few large pans (keeping the beets separate), cover with boiling salted water and parboil for 10 to 15 minutes, or until starting to soften. Drain the veg in a large colander and leave for a couple of minutes to steam dry. Give the colander a good shake to chuff up the edges, then tip into your largest roasting tray. Drizzle with the duck fat, pick over the rosemary leaves, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Push the veg into a single layer, then cook at 220°C/425°F/gas 7 for around 40 minutes, or until golden, crispy and delicious, turning halfway through for even cooking. Serve with the roast duck and the Marsala gravy.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
