Method

Preheat oven to 180C .

Your choice of oil to cook:

  • Sweet Roasted Garlic.
  • Colourful Turmeric and Lemon, or
  • Traditional Rosemary.

Toss the vegetables through the oil in your pan ensuring they all get an even coat.  Layer the vegetables evenly in your pan, try to avoid to much over laping, you want the vegetables to roast not steam.

Cook for approximately one hour or until golden and crisp.

To add a sweet glaze, drizzle a little Candied Balsamic over the vegetables about 10 minutes prior to serving

Your choice of Salt to season:

  • Szechuan Peppert, or
  • Rosemary.

Seasoning your vegetables at the end of the cooking will help to prevent them sticking to the pan.

For that extra soft inside but crunchie outside potatoe or sweet potatoe, steam first four 5 mins.  Fluff up the vegetables by shaking them around a little in the steamer - it's important to do like this if you want them to have all those lovely crispy bits when they're cooked.
