Honey-Roasted Vegetables | 1 Hour 15 Minutes

Honey-Roasted Vegetables | 1 Hour 15 Minutes Roasted vegetables are often given a diminished role in many meals. However, roasted vegetables become sweet and tender. They can make a delicious dish to pick at with a few friends. They can also be prepped well ahead of time and popped in the oven when you get hungry. Wine Pairing with Honey-Roasted Vegetables - Some may think that for honey-roasted vegetables, white wine is the way to go. Actually, we think Pinot Noir is the winner here. Light and acidic enough for the salty, sweet coating. Then, an earthy undercurrent to match the best root vegetables.
  • Prep & Cooking Time – 1hr 15mins
  • Serves – 2 People
  • Level – Easy
  • 2 Parsnips
  • 4 Large Carrots
  • 2 Large Red Beetroots
  • 5-6 Cloves of Whole Garlic
  • Handful of Fresh Sage & Thyme
  • 100ml Olive Oil
  • 200g Honey
  • Step 1

    Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade. This is the perfect temperature for Honey-Roasted Vegetables.

  • Step 2

    Begin the preparation by peeling and chopping the vegetables roughly into chunky, short batons until they’re all relatively similar sizes.

  • Step 3

    Mix the vegetables in a large roasting tin with the whole garlic cloves. You’ll want to keep the garlic whole so you can have the wonderfully sweet and mellow roasted garlic to mix it at the end.

  • Step 4

    Place the honey and olive oil in a saucepan over a low heat and slowly combine the two.

  • Step 5

    Slice up the sage and thyme, then add to the hot honey and oil mixture, with a good pinch of salt and cracked black pepper. Drizzle this over the vegetables and give it a good mix.

  • Step 6

    Cover the vegetables in the roasting tin and roast for around 45 minutes. Then, uncover and roast for a further 15 minutes, this will help to caramelise the honey-roasted vegetables.

  • Step 7

    Take the roasting tin out of the oven and pick out the garlic cloves. Using the flat side of a knife, push from the top down of each garlic clove. This will extract all the roasted garlic. Then, stir it into the honey-roasted vegetables.

    Give it one more pinch of salt and then, you’re ready to serve!
