Roasted root vegetables with rosemary...

There's nothing I love more than roasted vegetables and the other night for tea, I wanted something to go with some rather tasteless half fat sausages (don't do it kids!) I used parsnips, potatoes, onions and aubergines but if you've got it, beetroot is really nice!


Before you start peeling and chopping the vegetables, prepare a roasting dish with a generous amount of oil and put it in the oven to heat at 180-200°C.


Chop all the vegetables - the smaller you chop them, the crispier they'll be!


Prepare some rosemary to season the veg. I used some dried and some fresh to give it a nice strong taste.


Throw the rosemary into the roasting dish, followed by the vegetables. It should make a sizzling noise. If it doesn't then the oil isn't hot enough. Drizzle some more oil over the top and put it back in the oven.



Leave in the oven to roast until everything is really crispy.


We added the sausages to ours but you obviously put anything with roasted vegetables. As part of a roast beef dinner, it is my absolute favourite.

Ooh, I love roasted veg! Nothing more perfect for winter!
As for the sausages you should try the Linda McCartney or Quorn ones, both super low in fat & much tastier! :)

this has become a recent fave for T & I- rather than doing a whole roasted joint or bird (because our oven is rubbish and tiny), I have been doing the lazy version- potatoes, parsnips and anything else I have kicking around the fridge get shoved in to roast as usual, then the sausages (pricked edge down so the juices run through...) and say HELLO lazy roast dinner, because I have enough oven space to shove through some no stress yorkshires, and flash cook some greens.
