Some people don’t like their vegetables; I’m not particularly a fan, I just eat them to have a ‘balanced’ diet. However, if you roast them the majority of people will love them! With the help of the assorted sources below (including good old Jamie himself) I am going to show you 8 Mouth Watering Christmas Vegetable Recipes you should really try for yourself!

First off is Jamie Oliver and some herby roast potatoes, honey parsnips and delicious carrots, which should go down a treat!
2. Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon

I’m not a huge fan of sprouts, but when they were cooked with bacon they did suddenly become edible in my opinion (see, adding bacon just works wonders!) So create this dish and convert those sprout haters.
3. Cauliflower & Broccoli Gratin

I really like cauliflower and broccoli (yes, call me strange). I also really like cheese.
So if you have someone similar to me attending your Christmas dinner, try this Christmas vegetable recipe and you’ll have a very happy guest.
4. Sautéed Cabbage
Cabbage on its own isn’t that nice, but when sautéed with seasoning, butter and garlic, it’s transformed and tastes delicious! And that’s the story of how I’ve been converted to the cabbage side.
5. Stuffed Mushrooms

Just thought I’d add this one in even though I haven’t seen it featured at many Christmas dinners, but hey, every list needs a curveball. Plus this acts as an extra option for the vegetarians you could potentially be dining with.
6. Duchess Potato
While you could make a big pot of mashed potato at Christmas why not up your presentation game and go for Duchess potatoes, which involves piping the spud and then baking it for that extra crispness.
7. Brown Sugared Carrots

Carrots and sugar - ’what an odd combination’, you may think. But the sugar does enhance the flavour of the carrot making it the most exciting vegetable at the table.
8. Honey Roasted Butternut squash with Cranberries & Feta
For all you butternut squash lovers out there, here’s a dish for you, plus it’s not just roasted butternut squash it’s got some cranberries which adds the festive factor into this dish.
