    Peel and cut them into chunks. Put them in a roasting pan with a few cloves of chopped garlic, a couple of onions cut into 6 or 8 pieces, a spray of olive oil or two, some herbs like fresh thyme, rosemary..... Roast until cooked. At the end, you can add a sprinkling of balsamic vinegar or not. A
    Question of taste.
    You can add some tomatoes after about half the cooking time as well if you want a "sauce" on your veggies

    no points in vinegar, black olives half a point for 10, most veg a refree,plus points for the oil. I have made with fry light but comes out a bit dry-half and half is good

    Sweet Potatoes are pointed (2 points for a medium one) so remember to point that as well as your parsnips.

    Butternut Squash and Pumpkin are free (not sure if they are still in season) but they give you a nice sweetness in your roast veg without the points

    just a last thought, you can put chunks of chicken in and make it a one pot meal if you're not vegetarian

    Thats just how i would do it (with the toms also) and mushrooms of course! then once done you can sprinkle with a little parmesan cheese which is yummy.
