Lovely veg - and being able to prep them the day before so you only have to put them in the oven the next was brilliant.

Easy to make but I had to keep them in the oven for 10 mins longer as I like them crispy.

Would it work to par boil the veg for longer to reduce the raosting time?

Hi thefirefairy you could try to do it that way but the vegetables may not hold their shape if they are boiled for longer first and you will probably still need at least 20 mins in the oven to cook the glaze and get a good golden colour.  Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
