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.

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.
