Crispy roasted vegetables recipe
- Cuisine: Modern Australian

Featured as part of our Cooks and their Books series, this recipe comes courtesy of Australian food icon Margaret Fulton.
You can hardly have a roast turkey without some crispy vegetables on the side. Potatoes and parsnips roasted this way have a wonderful crisp golden crust. The garlic and rosemary give the vegetables extra punch. Serve with any roasted meat or poultry.
Ingredients1kg even-sized potatoes such as desiree, Dutch creams or pontiac, peeled, halved or quartered
¼ cup olive oil
Sprigs of rosemary (optional)
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season
4 parsnips, scraped lightly, halved
8 small red onions, halved
4–6 garlic cloves (optional)
PreparationPreheat the oven to 200°C. Boil the potatoes in a saucepan with enough water to cover for about 5 minutes, until just tender. Drain and cool slightly. With the lid on, shake the pan lightly so that the potatoes dry and have a slight crumbling on the surface but retain their shape.
Mix the oil, rosemary, salt and freshly ground black pepper together in a bowl. Add the potatoes, parsnips and onions and toss until well coated. Arrange the vegetables in a single layer in a baking tray.
Bake for 1 hour, or until very crisp, adding the garlic cloves after 30 minutes and turning occasionally. Serve immediately.

Red wine or white wine?
The general rule with wine is that red wine, with its richer and deeper flavours, is a great accompaniment to red meats, while white wine works well with white meats (fish and chicken). However take time to experiment, there are plenty of exceptions to the rules and with wine the rules are definitely made to be broken.
