I haven't posted a recipe on here for ages so I thought it was time, with it being the start of a new year, to start sharing them again.  We eat as seasonally as possible here, so we are currently eating lots of root vegetables.  I am always on the look out for new recipes.  I am not sure where this one came from, probably an amalgamation of several recipes.

Root Vegetable and Blue Cheese Bake

1lb Carrots
1lb Parsnips
1lb Potatoes
Knob of Butter
5 Spring Onions
Approx 100g Blue Cheese (I usually use Stilton)

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Peel and roughly chop the vegetables.  Boil in water until tender, drain and put in a bowl.
Chop the salad onions.
Melt butter in the same pan and gently fry the salad onions for a minute or so until soft, add the vegetables and stir to coat with butter and mix in the salad onion.
Chop the Stilton into small pieces
Put the vegetables in a large, buttered dish and scatter the cheese on top.
Put in the oven and cook for about 20 minutes until the cheese has melted.

I usually serve this with green beans (if I have any frozen ones from the garden), cabbage cooked or made into a salad.


  1. Sounds delicious! like the idea of using blue cheese. We made pasties with these vegetable and some turnip(a veggi which my mother in law thinks is only suitable for pigs!!)last weekend, next time i'll add some stilton.

  2. Oh my, this sounds delicious. Just the thing to use up the blue cheese in the fridge! Thanks! x

  3. I'm making this for lunch today!!! I bought the blue cheese specially for this meal!
