I used plain potatoes and added a spoonful of sugar instead. I left out the garlic and chilli as I don't like them. Made it for a family meal to celebrate my step dad coming out of prison and he it was a hit with everyone.

Lovely! I cut down on the garlic- as my tummy would hate me if i used a whole bulb never mind 2! I crushed 3 cloves of garlic and cut up one red chilli, seeds kept in for the kick. It was delicious! I served it with the one-pot chicken chasseur recipe also on bbcgoodfood as it was the reccommendation and how right it was! Made mash veg much more exciting :)

Made this with half the ingredients as that was all was available in fridge, used 8 cloves of garlic and chopped up veg small as I was short of time. Took only 25mins to cook through. Plenty of seasoning this is delicious and will definitely make it again.

Made the mash as per the recipe. Tasted lovely, the garlic roasts to become sweet so wasn't too garlicky for us.

The taste was too much combined with the other dishes, maybe next time I'll try to combine the sweet potatoes with some normal potatoes to tone down the sweetness

I made this with no garlic, just the one red chilli and it was delicious- all the family loved it.

Really very good winter veg dish. I only used 1 garlic but wished I had used 2 as it needed it to balance the sweetness of the root veg. Also 2 chillis would have been good.

This was nice, but i found it a little to garlicy for me, and i only used one bulb. I would definately make this again but with a little less garlic (half a bulb maybe?)

This was really tasty and I will definitely be making it again. Do not leave out the whole garlic as it lends a lovely mild and sweet garlic flavour to the dish. I served it as a side dish with roast lamb but missed out the chilli as my 18 month old was having it too!

Very nice - I only found chilly to be too strong so next time will replace it with more garlic, as the bulb I used was quite small (or the garlic was not too strong).

I used three cloves instead of bulbs, was really lovely and could not believe how quick the veg roasted!!
however it is extremely sweet, if your not a sweet veg fan try adding normal potatoes to tone the sweetness down.

I included the chilli seeds as we like it spicy and it was just delicious!

It's definately 2 Bulbs of Garlic.. cut in half. When roasted, they go very sweet, not like th etaste of a raw garlic at all. when done, you just pop the half cloves out of the bulb and add them to the potato, squash and chilli.

The roasted garlic method can be used to make a great spread for bread...

Hmm lovely. I'm sure the recipe means 2 cloves as opposed to 2 bulbs, but I still used 2 bulbs. In our house there is no such thing as too much garlic. Yum!
