  • Step 1

    Cut the carrots in half lengthways if large, leave any small carrots whole. Cut the parsnips in half lengthways and into quarters if particularly large. Toss together with the squash wedges, the oil, whole herbs, salt and pepper and transfer to the roasting tray.

  • Step 2

    Select ROAST, setting the temperature to 200°C and time to 40 minutes. Select START/STOP. Once the unit has pre-heated insert the baking tray.

  • Step 3

    Roast the vegetables for 10 minutes then add the orange rounds to the tray and roast for a further 25 to 30 minutes. Turn the veg half way through the cooking time.

  • Step 4

    Whilst the vegetables are roasting mix together the glaze. In the last 10 minutes of cooking pour the glaze over the vegetables, roasting until the veg are crisp and sticky.

  • Step 5

    Serve immediately with chopped, toasted pecans or almonds.
