Honey roasted carrots and parsnips with rosemary and thyme - easy to prepare and delicious to eat. The perfect accompaniment to your roast dinner.

Anyone reading my blog this week will have noticed a theme emerging. Now the summer has officially ended, I’m back in full roast dinner mode.

There’s another motive behind this new found desire to share everything roast dinner. I’ve entered into stealth Christmas mode. It’s that time when secretly everyone’s thinking about Christmas, but it’s a bit too early because you have to get Halloween out of the way first (or is it just me?).

Honey roasted carrots and parsnips with rosemary and thyme - easy to prepare and delicious to eat. The perfect accompaniment to your roast dinner.

I mentioned in my perfect roast potatoes post a couple of days ago that I’m not a huge fan of the Autumn and Winter. However, I’m a huge fan of Christmas. So, ever since Daniel started back at school and the evenings started getting darker, I’ve been thinking about Christmas.

I accept that it’s actually far too early to be sharing Christmas recipes, so I’m stealthily sharing them under the disguise of roast dinners. The great thing is that they’re just as perfect for your regular Sunday roast as they will be on the big day and by sharing them now it gives you the chance to try them out a few times before the big day comes!

  • 4 medium carrots
  • 4 medium parsnips

  • A pinch of salt

Instructions

  3. Put the carrots and parsnips into a baking tray, ensuring that they all have a bit of space.
  4. Mix the olive oil (2 tsp) and honey (2 tsp) in a cup and brush over the carrots and parsnips. Lay over the sprigs of rosemary and thyme and season with salt.
  5. Put into the oven and roast for 35-45 minutes (until they're soft with a little bite). Give the tray a shake every now and again to help them cook evenly.
  6. Once they're cooked, they're ready to serve.

  1. Tried these for the first time today and they turned out so well (apart from the ones that burnt but that was my bad for not keeping a better eye on them)

    Will definitely make them again.

  2. These taste lovely and came out the oven a really nice colour. I much prefer roasted veg as they keep their flavour better than boiled. Thanks for the recipe.
