Made this for the first time today. Used normal onions and cut in half, along with carrots and swede (didn't have any parsnips). Very easy, no fuss way to cook the root veg for a change. Didn't top with butter but did use salt and pepper to season. Had with foolproof roast chicken (also from Good food) Good. I would cook this again.

I usually make a healthier version of this recipe using different vegetables according to availability. I mostly use cauliflower (florets), carrots, onions. aubergines and green or coloured peppers(cut quite chunkily).Peel and add several whole garlic cloves too. Season with sea salt and ground pepper. Add fresh basil if available and mixed dried herbs on top and pop in the oven 190C for 40-45 mins. Toss half way through the cooking time. I use this especially when on a slimming diet. I keep it as a stand by in the fridge to eat with roast chicken or tuna(from a tin!) when I'm hungry and need something ready quickly.

Davidg, Are you an English man if so how come you don't know what a parsnip is. It looks like a larger carrot only white, well creamy white, and sometimes has a green shoot from its top. You Top and tail and peel just like a carrot. They are softer and sweeter than carrots which are delish roasted around your meat or if a veggie just roasted with peppers, carrots, onions and potatoes add pepper and some honey half way through cooking. Yummy!

Loved it, i don't normally like cooked carrots or swede but this was very tasty. I'm doing xmas for the first time this year and i reckon this will be a good way to do the vegetables so i don't have to stress about them.

Brilliant. Best roast veg I have ever made. Used turnip instead of swede, as we can not get swede here and added butternut squash.

Perfect if cooked for only 40 minutes at 190oC and vegetables cut quite thick

Can anyone tell me what a parnip is?

Sounds lovely - but the addition of butter negates the vegan tag, omit the butter brushing to enjoy clean food.
