Ready in 50 minutes
*If part of a complete roast meal, the vegetables can be roasted at the same time as a joint of meat or poultry. Allow 45 minutes at 200ºC, or longer at a lower temperature, if necessary.
*Baby new vegetables can also be roasted in this dish with delicious results. For example, try new potatoes, carrots, beetroot and turnips.
*As well as root vegetables, baby squash and asparagus are also delicious roasted. Sprinkle them with herbs and a little balsamic vinegar or lemon juice.
Combining different root vegetables instead of serving roast potatoes alone provides a good mix of flavours and nutrients, including vitamin C from the potatoes and beta carotene from the carrots. Swedes are part of the brassica family, which offer cancer-fighting phytochemicals.
