We're having roast lamb for Christmas day, which has a red wine and red currant jelly gravy with it (click here). That'll be served with roast potatoes, but I need some additional veg to go with it.
The gravy can leave a little tang in the mouth so I'm thinking something like a sweet potato dish. Does anyone have a recipe they could suggest, either sweet potato or anything else that might go with the dinner?
are definitely the right accompaniment to lamb, and a clove or two of roasted garlic is a must.
Add some red onions, and cut them into six or eight portions, but not completely through, so they're still in one piece, so to speak. When roasted they open up, and look very attractive amongst the other vegetables.
I'll also be doing roast root vegetables with the Guinea fowl that I blagged a few weeks ago (it always pays to keep in with the local gamekeeper). I do roast veg simply with only rosemary sprigs in them, and with the lamb, that's all all that's needed to not to overcomplicate the flavours. needed
My father had a baked parsnip recipe that was always popular with a roast meal, I seem to remember it was parsnips with some tomato and onion and leek, topped with a savoury crumble topping. No garlic because he hated the taste but I feel sure it would be good with a little. I will try and track down the recipe again. So many people like parsnips roasted as they are, that I haven't done that recipe recently.
OTT_B When I was searching for the above, I did stumble on a sweet potato, parsnip and orange recipe that you might like.
