Roasted roots in honey and mustard

Side Serves 6 1h 5 min
This is one of our favourite ways with root veg: roasted to intensify their flavour, then accented with a glaze of honey and mustard. It's a magnificent side to a Sunday roast or eaten on its own with couscous. This works well with parsnips, carrots, swede, celeriac or beetroot, or a mixture.


  • 1kg root veg, peeled and cut into chunks, lengths or wedges
  • olive oil
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp wholegrain mustard
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 55 min
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas 6. Toss the veg in a roasting tray with just enough oil to coat. Season. Roast in the oven for 40 minutes, turning once or twice so they cook evenly.
  • Step 2

    Mix the honey and mustard together in a bowl. Mix with the roasted veg. Return to the oven for about 10-15 minutes or so, depending on your oven, until the veg is tender.
