Used fewer parsnips, more carrots, and celery in the absence of celeriac. I also added maple syrup instead of honey and roasted everything for longer than suggested so they looked much nicer than this picture shows!

Great way to cook veg, especially if you want to impress guests as they are easy but taste delishous. I added leeks too, and they were really tasty. Will be cooking again and again..... :-)

Never cooked roasted vegetables before, I used sweet potato instead of celeriac and put in some onions. I also left out the garlic. It was so easy they tasted great. I used the left overs to make a soup. I love the way roasting brings out the flavour of the veg, much,much better than just boiling them.

Can be used with any root veg and goes great with roast beef. I used just a little honey to bring out the sweetness.

Basic roast veg recipe. Quick and easy. I omitted the honey stage as we like the natural flavours of the veg. Will do again.
