Ingredients

  • Root vegetables (such as carrots, beetroot, parsnips, sweet potato, butternut squash and parsnip)
  • Softer vegetables (such as red onions, whole garlic bulbs, courgettes, tomatoes, red peppers and aubergine)
  • Hillfarm cold pressed rapeseed oil

  3. Add a splash of oil to a large roasting tin, and heat for a few minutes in the oven
  4. Next add the root vegetables, generously coating with the hot oil before seasoning with a good pinch of salt and pepper
  5. Scatter all the herbs over the vegetables before putting into the oven
  6. After 20-25 minutes, add the softer vegetables, then give the tin a good shake before putting it back in the oven
  7. Cook for another 25-30 minutes, keeping an eye on the vegetables towards the end of the cooking time
  8. Serve as a side dish, or add leftover roast chicken, feta or chickpeas for a quick and nutritious main meal.
