“Yes, I know the recipe includes many spices, but this is what gives it so much flavour, without overwhelming the natural sweetness of the vegetables. You can, of course, adjust the spices to your liking. I find that the brown sugar and marmite seems to enhance the sweetness of the vegetables. A perfect side dish for Christmas.”
