  • I haven't specified amounts for this recipe as it depends on how many people you are serving.
  • I usually allocate 2 pieces of each vegetable per person.
  • If I am making gravy I will usually halve a head of garlic and add this to the baking tray so I can use it in the gravy.
  • Make sure you cut all pieces about the same size so they take the same length of time to cook.
