Sweet Potatoes and Carrots

Recipe by Scots LassCairo

This is a tasty way of cooking root vegetables. It can be served as a side-dish to accompany roast chicken, or can be topped with thick Greek yoghurt and served as a starter with warm bread

I'm always looking for new recipe ideas for vegetables so thought I'd give this a go. I've done honeyed carrots before but never thought of adding sweet potato too. I left out the cumin seeds as I didn't have any but otherwise made as directed. Went well with our roast lamb dinner. Thanks!

  3. Mix the honey, butter, oil and spices in a bowl. Put the vegetables into a baking dish.
  4. Set the oven to 220C.
  5. Brush the vegetables with the butter mixture.
  6. Bake for about 25 minutes until tender, basting the vegetables with the remainder of the butter mixture.
