Roasted caramelised vegetables coated with olive oil, maple syrup and wholegrain mustard and fragrant thyme. We pre-heat the oven high so that the maple bakes and adds a caramel, chewy flavour to the earthy root vegetables.
Total time to make : 40 minutes
Time to prep : 10 minutes
Time to cook : 30 minutes
Servings : 4 - 6
2 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
6 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves plucked
Pre-heat a fan oven to 220ºC.
Remove the tips from your vegetables, no need to peel them. Cut them in half lengthways (you might need to cut any bigger ones into quarters) until they're all equal sizes. Put the sliced vegetables in a large roasting tin.
Drizzle over the olive oil and maple syrup and spoon in the wholegrain mustard with a large pinch of salt and the thyme leaves. Use clean hands to toss everything through until evenly covered. Roast in the oven for 30minutes, shaking them half-way through until tender when pricked with a fork but charred and bronzed on the outside.
Garnish with fresh micro-herbs or chopped parsley.
