  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into pieces

  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into pieces

Equipment Needed:

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).

  2. Prepare Vegetables: In a large mixing bowl, combine the carrots, parsnips, butternut squash, bell peppers, red onion, zucchini, and garlic cloves. Drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt, pepper, and mixed herbs. Toss until all the vegetables are evenly coated.

  3. Roast: Spread the vegetables out in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Ensure they are not overcrowded to allow for even roasting.

  4. Cook: Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 25-30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and caramelised on the edges. Halfway through the cooking time, use a spatula or tongs to turn the vegetables for even roasting.

  5. Serve: Remove from the oven and transfer to a serving dish. Garnish with fresh parsley before serving.

Suggested Side Dishes:

Common Mistakes/Points of Care:

  • Vegetable Size: Cut the vegetables into similar sizes for even cooking.

  • Overcrowding the Pan: Spread the vegetables in a single layer with some space between them to ensure they roast rather than steam.

  • Roasting Time: Adjust the time based on the size of your vegetable pieces and your oven's characteristics.
