Boiled the night before so I could just pop it into a hot oven with the Parmesan etc beside the main dish. Still had a touch too much crunch even though I thought it was cooked enough. Didn't love but would try again. With this method, the Parmesan needed more time to get crispy and brown, and possibly I used too much oil.

Does anyone know if these could be eaten cold or they go horrid like potato wedges do? Thinking of picnic food

I found this a bit disapointing, by the time the swede is cooked the parmesan has burnt....

As per the picture I cut my swede into chunky chips - and after 45-50 mins they were still crunchy in the middle. Will try again with much thinner chip sizes as tasty flavour and great alternative to potatoes.

Also, I tossed in oil and cheese before transferring to roasting dish, to cut down on the wastage and burning. Tray still had fair amount of burnt cheese on it, but to be expected. Will add more garlic cloves next time too as we love roast garlic. Will try again!

The suede turned out lovely. It reminded my husband of his childhood. :)

I topped the suede with the parmesan instead of tossing them in the parmesan. That way you use less and there is no waste.

Did anyone have the problem that I had - the parmesan cheese congealed with the oil then burnt on the bottom of the pan? I stilll think it will be delicious!

I also did this recipe using parsnips which I happend to have, straight after boiling I tossed them in the parmesan mix then roasted them in the oven. Very tasty and will definatly be making it again.

I'm making these at the weekend with some side dips, Guacamole (Its Barneys also on this site, Iv'e made it before and its amazing) Red Pepper humus (on this site) and Sour Cream Garlic dip. Thought I might do a few Celery sticks aswel. To go with these dips I'm making Ciabatta Seafood pizza's. (the seafood being, king prawns, mussels and squid) Yum! wish it was the weekend already...

This... was epic. I forgot the butter and garlic but nevermind. It was one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten. Thumbs up!!!!

Did this using Parsnips instead of swede as I can't have a roast dinner without swede purée and the parsnips were delicious. Par-boiled them in salted garlic water,drained and drizzled with olive oil then tossed in seasoned flour and grated parmesan cheese. Lovely roasted in the oven

Absolutely lovely, a really nice alternative to just mashed or diced on your sunday roast. Would highly recommend to anybody!!

The end result was nice but it needed about 45-50 mins in the oven if using from fresh so the middle of the swede is soft. Maybe microwave for 5 mins before roasting if short of time...

Lovely, I thought they would need longer in the oven (as 35mins is quite short) No need to boil before hand.

Will defo make again

This swede was great - the oven really colours the swede and its a great alternative to potato wedges.

This is absolutely delicious. I make lots and we can eat it over several dinners. My husband hates parmesan cheese eaten in the usual way, but loves this.

Do you have to boil the sweed first before you cook them??

I cut down on the amount of fat (less oil, no butter) and cheese and these were still very tasty!
