Winter roots and lemon roast

Give winter root vegetables a makeover with a couple of tweaks from Nigel Slater.

Ingredients

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400C/Gas 6.

  2. Give the artichokes and potatoes a good scrub (I don’t bother peeling them). Cut them in half lengthways, then steam for 10-15 minutes, or until they are showing the first signs of tenderness.

  3. Tip the steamed vegetables into a roasting tin. Pour in the olive oil and toss gently. Halve the lemons and squeeze the juice of one and a half of them over the vegetables. Tuck the empty lemon shells in around the vegetables. Season well and roast for 30-35 minutes, or until sticky around the edges.

  4. To serve, spoon the vegetables onto plates and sprinkle over plenty of flatleaf parsley. Squeeze over the remaining lemon juice and add a few slithers of parmesan to each serving.
