Ingredients

  • 125g carrots, peeled, halved and cut into wedges
  • 1 red onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • a good glug olive oil
  • 8 sausages
  • 125g long-stemmed broccoli, tough bottom stalks peeled off, trimmed and split lengthways
  • 16 cherry tomatoes

BATTER

  • 150ml whole milk
  • 110g plain flour
  • 1 tsp English mustard powder
  • a pinch sea salt flakes
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • a sprig rosemary, leaves picked and roughly chopped, plus extra to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. First, make the batter. Tip the milk, flour, mustard powder, salt, eggs and 150ml of water into a blender (this won’t work in a food processor) and briefly whizz together until just combined. Stir in the rosemary leaves and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Put the carrots and red onion into a large, shallow roasting tin with the olive oil and some salt and pepper. Swirl the tin around to coat. Spread everything out in a single layer, then nestle in the sausages among the veg. Roast at the top of the oven for 15 minutes.

  • STEP 3

    Turn over the vegetables and sausages, add the broccoli and roast for a further 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and scatter over the cherry tomatoes.

  • STEP 4

    Give the batter a quick stir, then pour it over the vegetables. Return to the oven for a further 25-30 minutes or until the batter has risen and is deep golden brown.

  • STEP 5

    Serve scattered with a few sea salt flakes and some extra sprigs of rosemary. This is also good served with mustard.
