  1. Place your oven on 400°F to heat up, drizzle 2-3 tablespoons olive oil into your oven dish, and place in the oven.

  3. Once the oven is up to temperature remove the oven dish and place all the veggies into the tray along with a few glugs of olive oil and a couple of generous pinches of salt and pepper.
  4. Place in the oven for 20 minutes before roughly turning the veg and place back in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

- Ovens can differ quite a lot from each other, so keep an eye on them if your oven runs very hot as the time may be faster for you!
