There are heaps of different vegetables that can be roasted well together. Try to get a good combination of root vegies with some onions or shallots, and then chuck in anything else that you fancy. Cut your vegies to a similar size, but remember that soft-textured vegetables such as zucchini, squash or strips of peppers will roast more quickly than dense, firm-textured ones; so add them to the tin towards the end of the cooking time.

This dish is as pretty as a picture and I think makes a great meal on its own. It is also fantastic served as an accompaniment to grills and roasts. You can easily turn it into a warm autumn vegetable salad, by serving the vegies at room temperature, tossed with a tangy dressing.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 large carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
2 parsnips, peeled and cut into chunks
2 onions, peeled and quartered
2 fennel bulbs, trimmed and cut into sixths
250g pumpkin, cut into chunks
2 medium beetroots, cut into sixths
1 head garlic, cloves separated but unpeeled
olive oil
salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup parsley, chopped

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC and lightly oil a large roasting tin.
  2. Prepare the vegetables and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Tip the vegetables into the roasting tin and cook for 20–30 minutes until they are golden brown and tender, but not mushy.
  3. Scatter with parsley just before serving with your favourite roast.
