If the oven is on for a roast why not roast some veg at the same time? I find it less time consuming and any leftovers can be added to salads, risottos and even soup. Serves 4-6.
1 small butternut pumpkin or any other that roasts well
4-6 cloves of garlic, skinned but left whole
a splash of olive oil
Fresh thyme leaves
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Centigrade.
Cut the pumpkin into quarters then slice into 1cm pieces, arrange in you roasting tin.
Add the garlic to the pumpkin, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with thyme.
Mix well, hands are ideal!
Roast in the preheated oven for 40-60mins depending on thickness.
