"I call this a centre stage dish because it really can hold up as star of the show. I love placing vegetables at the heart of the table and for anyone perhaps trying to eat a little less meat this Christmas it makes for a wonderful main course. I love the festive colours of this dish and it never fails to get me into the Christmas mood."
