I read the ingredient list, and was really disappointed! I came to this recipe from the Duck with clementine sauce, and was really looking forward to it. I have to say, I would have expected maybe shallots and garlic as well as carrot and turnip. But the one veg I really expected to see was beetroot! Nowadays, it seems to have returned to favour, big time. And I reckon it would go really well both with the duck and with the taste of the clementine. I'm intending to have duck at some point over the holiday season - so I'll maybe do my own set of roast veg - and get back to you!
