Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 240 C / Gas 9 on fan bake. If you do not have fan bake, it will just take a little longer to brown.
  2. Stir together the vegetable oil, cayenne, chilli seasoning, minced chilli, garlic, onion powder, garlic powder, orange pepper and salt.
  3. Toss the root veg in the oil and spice mix until they are all covered.
  4. Place in an oven proof dish large enough to spread out in a single layer.
  5. Roast until tender, about 30 minutes, turning a couple of times throughout the cooking process.


This recipe will work with any mix of root vegetables.


Any mix of chilli and garlic you have on hand will work with any herb you want to use I have used oregano or thyme or even rosemary before.


Serve with microwaved salmon with a sour cream and coriander dressing and steamed broccoli.
