Winterfell is ready for winter. As the snow and cold (and presumably the White Walkers) approach its stone walls, the folk who live there are bunkering down and hoarding all the food they can. This includes a large cellar full of roots and vegetables harvested during summer.

I managed to collect a vast range of rooty vegetables from rainbow potatoes, parsnips and radishes to carrots, leeks and onions.

This recipe is as hardy as it is easy. Just wash and chop all of the vegetables, season with salt and pepper as desired, then toss with some vegetable oil and dot generously with butter. If there's one thing George R.R. Martin loves to include in his recipes its vegetables "swimming in butter."

Roast the vegetables, covered, for 45 minutes then uncover and roast for another 20 minutes after gently stirring and flipping them.

The potatoes, onions and garlic add a robust flavor that is defined by the sweetness of the parsnips, radishes and carrots. Feel free to use your favorite root vegetables like beets or celeric too!

Serve the root vegetable medley alongside some Baratheon boar ribs and a large cup of wine.
