Festive Honey-Glazed Roasted Root Vegetables With Saffron

70 mins (prep 10, cooking 60)
12 ingredients
6-8 servings
Roasted parsnips, carrots and pink shallots, glazed with saffron honey and sprinkled with cumin and celery seeds......sublime! These roasted root vegetables are undoubtedly very special, and they are so easy to roast as they require NO par-boiling beforehand. A simple glaze is made by adding saffron to melted honey, before sprinkling cumin and celery seeds over the top......slam them in the oven, and pour yourself a glass of wine! I make these nearly every Christmas and for other special events throughout the year. I have experimented with other vegetables, but have found that this simple combination works the best for optimum flavour and colour, so no need to over gild the lily! Sprinkle them with chopped lovage or parsley before serving. I have indicated amounts per person and not weights....please adjust the quantities to your own requirements.
