Roast vegetable megamix

Roast Vegetables Mega mix

Serves 4

  • olive oil

  • Carrots

  • 500 g carrots, peeled

  • Juice from 1 clementine, squeezed, halves reserved

  • Few sprigs of rosemary, leaves picked

  • Fennel

  • 2 bulbs of fennel, peeled, quartered

  • few sprigs of thyme, leaves picked

  • 1/2 lemon

  • Parsnips

  • 400 g parnsips, peeled

  • Glug of white wine vinegar

  • 2–3 sprigs of sage, leaves torn

  • 1 small tsp honey, kept back

  • Beets

  • 350 g beetroot

  • couple glugs of balsamic vinegar

  • few sprigs of oregano or marjoram

  • Turnips

  • 350 g baby turnips

  • couple glugs of red wine vinegar

  • 5 fresh bay leaves

Preheat your oven to 190C/gas 5. If any carrots, parsnips or turnips are big, chop them in half. Parboil all your veg together, except the beets, as they'll turn everything red! The beets take a little longer to cook, around 20–25 minutes, so get them on first.



Parboil the rest of your veg for 10 minutes in a large pan of salted boiling water. Drain, then let them steam dry, then separate them out so you can hit them with those different flavours.



Mix up the veg with the matching flavours, except the honey. Lay them out on a large tray, keeping each veg type together. (You can get up to this stage the day before, then cover them with foil and keep them with your spuds till your turkey is resting. Nothing will discolour because of the oil and acid.)



Roast them for 50–60 minutes, until they are golden, crispy and beautiful. Five minutes before the veg are ready, drizzle the honey over the parsnips. Take them all out the oven, give the tray a jiggle, then pile the veg on a platter.

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.
