  2. Trim the carrots and halve lengthways if large. Remove any shoots and roots on the beetroot to 1cm (in) and then quarter or cut into thin wedges.
  3. In a large roasting tin, spread out the carrots, beetroot and shallots in one layer. Tuck in the bay leaves and thyme sprigs. Drizzle with the oil and season. Roast in the oven for 40 mins.
  4. Stir in the asparagus and drizzle with the vinegar and honey. Sprinkle with the spices and seeds and roast for another 20 mins until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. (Not suitable for freezing).
