Preheat the oven to 200’C. Mix all vegetables/herbs together and drizzle will oil or add butter if you are using. Season with salt and pepper, and scoop into a roasting tray. Roast the vegetables for 15 to 20 minutes until soft but still firm.

  1. Sauce: Heat the oil/butter and add the lemon juice/lemon rind. Add the flour and stir with a whisk for half a minute. Add the stock cube and the milk and stir to combine. Lightly stir with the whisk, until sauce thickens. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and fold in the parsley. Allow to simmer for a few minutes.
  2. Pour sauce over cooked vegetables in your serving dish and top with pine-nuts and any extra parsley.

Cooks tip! Broccoli or butternut can also be added to the roasting pan for extra veg. If you eat feta cheese or goat’s cheese, it is also great crumbled over the top. Parmesan cheese, grated is delicious over the top too.
