Make ahead
You can prepare all the veg for this side dish several hours in advance, then chill until ready to cook. If you can't find some of the veg, you could add some whole roasted chestnuts towards the end of cooking instead.


  1. Heat oven to 150C/130C fan/gas 2. Melt the butter in a large heavy-based frying pan. Add all the vegetables (or do this in 2 batches if necessary rather than overcrowd the pan) and a little sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, then sweat them on a medium heat for 5 mins.

  2. Transfer the veg to a large roasting tin, pour in 150ml water, cover with foil, then roast for about 2 hrs or until meltingly tender but still holding their shape. Taste and correct the seasoning.
