Honestly, why go to all the trouble of cooking the Christmas vegetables separately. Cut the faff and cook up this delicious, one tray honey roasted vegetables for Christmas dinner.

It’s really easy to prepare, super simple to cook and a whole lot less effort than creating lots of separate side dishes.

You could also tuck the pigs in blankets or sausages onto this tray too and roast them with the veggies. That in itself makes a great meal, just add some cranberry sauce and stuffing on the side.

Step One – prepare your Christmas dinner vegetables

  • Peel and trim the sprouts – chop them into halves
  • Scrub the carrots and chop any chunky ones into half lengthways
  • Peel the parsnips and chop into batons roughly the same size as the carrots
  • Scrub the baby potatoes and chop them into bitesized pieces
  • Then tip all the veggies into a mixing bowl

Step Three – roast the vegetable tray bake into the oven

  • Tip the oiled vegetables onto the baking tray and cover tightly with foil. Adding the foil, just means that the vegetables have chance to soften in the centres before they start to brown and roast on the outside.
  • Put the tray bake into the oven and roast for 30 minutes.

Step Four – drizzle the honey onto the roasted Christmas vegetables

  • Remove the vegetable tray bake from the oven, take off the foil and then drizzle over the honey. I use a squeezy pot and just drizzle over the amount I feel I’d like that day!

  • Then return the vegetable tray bake to the oven (no foil this time) and cook for a further 10 – 15 minutes or until the vegetables are caramelising and roasting and looking delicious!
