If you want a change from the traditional sprouts and boiled carrots, there are lots of alternatives from the simple to the elaborate. A very easy and tasty dish is roasted root vegetables. Cut up a variety of root veg – carrots, parsnips, sweet potatoes, onion, squash, swede – in any combination you fancy, into large chunks. Drizzle with oil, salt and pepper (you can use a splash of wine or vinegar, or a little honey) and roast at 220 for 30 min, after the turkey has come out of the oven.
A richer dish is leeks in cheese sauce (this can be prepared in advance and browned in the oven or just fry the leeks in butter rather than boiling them. This can be good if you're going for plainer flavours otherwise – boiled rather than roast potatoes etc. Finally, especially if you're having ham or gammon with the meal, onions boiled slowly in a little water, with a spoonful each of sugar and butter, and then browned quickly at a high heat, are great.
