We’re into December now and there’s only one thing on everyone’s mind – Christmas. I’m here to help make it a little easier on you with my super simple & intensely delicious ultimate roast veg recipe. Not only that, but you could bag yourself literally the greatest roasting pan I have ever used! Competition details at the end of the post.
Here is what you will need to serve 3-4 as a side dish.
- 350g Baby Potatoes, quartered
- 2 – 3 Large Carrots, peeled & sliced
- 2 – 3 Large Parsnips, peeled & sliced
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 tsp Oregano
- 1 tsp Thyme
- 2 tbsp Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
- Fresh Parsley, to garnish (Optional)
Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C.
Quarter the baby potatoes (they should be roughly 3cm in diameter) then peel the carrots & parsnips.
Slice the carrots & parsnips to approx the same size as the potatoes – this will ensure it all cooks evenly.
Then throw it all into a good quality roasting pan along with the garlic powder, oregano, thyme, olive oil & a generous helping of salt & pepper.
Get your hands in and mix it all together so everything is evenly coated.
I gave mine a mix half way through the cooking time.
I told you it was simple! No mess, no fuss recipes are exactly what you need on Christmas Day to eliminate all that unnecessary stress. This is literally – chop it, mix it, cook it . Job done! And only one pan to wash after?? You’re welcome.
Now, onto the more important business at hand. The Scanpan roasting pan. Wowsers this is a great piece of kit! I’ll be honest, I had never actually heard of the brand until now. But honestly? This really is a kitchen must have and completely obliterates all the other roasting pans I have ever used!
What you need to know: Scanpan is a Danish company that not only strive for unrivaled quality with their patented ceramic titanium coating but they also care deeply about the environment. Despite the added cost, the Scanpan Classic range is made using 100% recycled aluminium and even the packaging they come in is 100% recycled material too.
The ceramic titanium non stick coating is really something to shout about too. I mean, nothing is going to stick to this baby – NOTHING! Every time I’ve roasted veg in a roasting pan, something has always stuck to the bottom and it’s a nightmare to clean. With this? No chance! Everything wiped straight off. It was like you hadn’t cooked anything in it in the first place.
Another thing I noticed when making this recipe was how evenly everything cooked. They claim the roasting pans have fast & even heat distribution and I totally agree! Fantastic stuff.
An additional feature that I think is also worth noting, is the fact that the bottom allows it to be used both on the hob & in the oven. So you could sear some chicken or beef on the hob and finish it off in the oven – all in one pan. It literally does it all!
So, to be in with a chance of winning your very own Scanpan Roasting pan – just do one or all of the following 3 things:
