  • Preheat oven to 200 C, 400 F or gas 6.
  • Put all the vegetables into a large roasting tray & tip in the oil & vinegar from the bag. Sprinkle generously with the thyme leaves, salt & freshly ground black pepper.
  • Make a tent of aluminium foil over the vegetables & seal tightly.
  • Roast for 30 minutes & then uncover and roast for a further 30 minutes. Give the vegetables a good stir half way through & just before serving.
  • Tip the vegetables onto a platter and serve immediately, garnishing with fresh parsley & a sprig of fresh thyme.
