Roasted Potatoes, Parsnips and Carrots

Recipe by LifeIsGood
READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Peel the veggies and halve any larger ones lengthways. I like to quarter my potatoes (sometimes more if they are large).
  • Break the garlic bulb into cloves, smash them slightly and take peels off. (Jamie leaves his unpeeled, but I prefer the garlic peeled.).
  • Pick the rosemary leaves off the stalks.
  • Put the potatoes and carrots into a large pan of salted boiling water on high heat and bring back to a boil. Boil for about 5 minutes, then add the parsnips and cook for another 4 minutes.
  • Drain the veggies in a colander and allow to steam dry.
  • Take the carrots and parsnips out and set aside.
  • "Fluff" the potatoes in the colander by shaking it around a little. It's important to do this if you want the yummy crispy bits and edges.
  • Put a large roasting pan over medium heat and add the olive oil. Add the garlic and rosemary leaves. Then put all the veggies into the pan with a good pinch of salt and pepper. Stir them around to get them well coated.
  • Spread the veggies evenly out into one layer. This is important, so they will roast, not steam.
  • Put them into the preheated oven and cook for about 45 minutes to an hour. This will depend on your oven. I like to stir them up at least once while cooking. Watch so they don't burn.
