A great Christmas side dish to pair alongside your roast turkey. Keep any leftover granola for a light and tasty snack!

Method for the Granola:

  1. Preheat oven to 140°c fan assisted or 160°c without a fan (gas 3).
  2. In a bowl mix together the lime zest (and juice), honey and rapeseed oil, then add the spices, a pinch of sea salt, then mix the dry granola ingredients to thoroughly coat.
  3. Spread onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 40 minutes turning a couple of times. Remove from oven and leave to cool.

(Keep an eye on the granola for the final stage of cooking as it can burn easily!)

Method for the Vegetables:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°c fan assisted or 200°c without a fan (gas 6).
  2. Toss the vegetables in the schmaltz or rapeseed oil and sprinkle with sea salt, then place onto a roasting tray and roast for 40 minutes until sweet and tender turning after 20 minutes.
  3. Scatter over the granola and chopped fresh coriander.
