Yorkshire Root Vegetable Bake

Main courseServes 4

North Yorkshire based food tour business Yorkshire Food Finder have diversified during the current lock down period to create a blog encouraging people to use locally sourced and seasonal produce. Run by husband and wife team Aiden and Sue Nelson from their home in Wheldrake near York, the new blog, Lock Down - Eat Up! provides weekly recipe inspiration using the vegetable boxes from Bert’s Barrow farm shop near Selby, along with a host of other locally sourced goodies. This hearty recipe for Yorkshire Root Vegetable Bake uses swede, carrot, parsnips, potato and an onion which are all available in the week’s boxes, but you could add in others that you have to hand to create a deliciously warming and comforting side dish or dinner.

Fresh chopped sage or any other fresh or dried herbs

  1. Peel and thinly slice the root veg. Peel the onion, cut it in half lengthways then slice thinly into half rounds.
  2. In a shallow roasting dish, layer the veg adding some of the onion and herbs, plus a couple of knobs of butter and a scattering of grated cheese, to each layer as you go. Season to taste.
  3. Whisk the egg and the milk together and pour over the vegetables. Top with the remaining grated cheese and bake in a hot oven for about an hour until the veg is tender. Delicious!
