What are your must have vegetables with Christmas dinner?

DameXanaduBramble Tue 20-Dec-16 11:00:24

Sprouts
Carrots
Roast potatoes
Peas

That's it. Don't like to over complicate. I used to make cauli cheese but I find less is more.

DameXanaduBramble Tue 20-Dec-16 11:01:12

How did I forget parsnips!

Randytortoise Tue 20-Dec-16 11:01:55

Roast parsnips and carrots
Broccoli and cauliflower
Peas
Roast potatoes
Mash potatoes

NoCapes Tue 20-Dec-16 11:05:28

Roast potatoes
Parsnips
Carrots
Sprouts

That's it, and certainly no mash shock
My mum suggested peas this year and we were all shock and hmm in equal measures

We have

mash
roast potatoes (although I don't really count potatoes as vegetables)

parsnips
carrots
peas
cauliflower cheese
red cabbage
pan fried sprout leaves with bacon and chestnuts

(Then turkey, pigs in blankets, stuffing and a roast ham).

We normally have carrots, sprouts and parsnips. But I only like carrots so looking for more inspiration as to what to add.

Sprouts with bacon lard ons
Broccoli and cauliflower
Roast and mashed potato
Peas and sweetcorn
Parsnips and carrots

Thai is what mum serves. Personally I think it's too much and I'd have roast pots, Parsnips, Sprouts and Broccoli.

Ooh parsnips definitely, and sprouts even though they're detestable

I'm doing carrots too, which I hate. You've made me think I need to rework my menu, OP!

MelanieCheeks Tue 20-Dec-16 18:01:06

Roast parsnips
Sprouts done with chestnuts and bacon lardons and a dash of Madeira.

BroomstickOfLove Tue 20-Dec-16 18:02:06

Roast potatoes.
Sprouts with bacon and white wine.
Carrot and swede mash
Roast parsnips.

I might do celeriac dauphinois, but if I do, it will be an unexpected extra.

BroomstickOfLove Tue 20-Dec-16 18:03:18

We all really like sprouts, though, and eat lunch ads. If the sprouts are basically just a garnish for the meal, then probably adding peas or broccoli makes more sense.

Randytortoise Tue 20-Dec-16 18:04:00

I forgot the sprouts!

Mummyreindeerlegz Tue 20-Dec-16 18:05:22

Roast potatoes and parsnips
Mashed potato for the fussy toddler
Carrots

Red cabbage (braised the delia way)
