Christmas Recipe Day 8…
Prep Time: 15 minutes. Bake Time: 30 minutes. Serves: 4 people
Honey and rosemary roasted vegetables make a wonderful accompaniment to your Christmas roast dinner! Rather than just having standard roasted vegetables, add some flavour and really make this side dish pop with flavour. With the comfort of all these winter vegetables you’ll love it as they go well with any main dish that you plan to make. A versatile veggie dish that you can tailor make to the vegetables you like to eat most. So take a look at our recipe below and keep this in mind for Christmas day or any other day from now 😉
-1kg Maris Piper potatoes (you can use any but we prefer these) cut into chunks- we like to leave the skin on!
-4 large carrots (cut into chunks)
-4 parsnips (cut into chunks)
-1 pack tender stem broccoli- (you can also use Brussel sprouts cut in halves if you prefer!)
-4 rosemary sprigs
-2 large red onions (cut into large slices)
-4 garlic gloves (crushed or leave whole if you wish)
-4tsbp olive oil
-Salt and pepper to taste
1. Start off by preheating the oven to gas mark 5/ 375F/ 190C.
2. In a large bowl add in all your prepared veggies and the garlic with the olive oil and mix well. Now add in the honey and mix well together. Finally add in the crushed chillies and paprika mix those through.
3. Spread everything on a baking tray and use two baking trays if you need more room for the vegetables- try not to overlap everything too much. Then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and add the rosemary sprigs.
4. Bake in the oven for approximately 30 minutes until everything has cooked through well. About half way through turn the vegetables over and give them a good mix then continue to cook. Finally 5 minutes before the end add the hazelnuts and continue cooking for the remainder of the time.
5. Once cooked serve immediately with your choice of mains. (Another great tip is if you would like to turn this into a main dish, 5 minutes before the vegetables are cooked add in a tin of beans of your choice, mix well and serve with your choice of dip! (Butter beans and chickpeas work the best!)
A tasty and more fun, yet indulgent way to eat more veggies!
