rich emollient used in the management of eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions.


Roasted vegetables are one of my favourite winter recipes and I have cooked them before for this blog. It is Halloween tonight and what better to come home from trick or treating to a warm filling meal? I have never cooked radish before but I will do again!


Chicken drumsticks 4-6

200g Turnip

(you don’t need to have baby turnips – these just look good in the picture – larger turnips are fine to use)

200g Carrots

(multi-coloured carrots look great but ordinary carrots are just as good)

50g Radish

1 large tablespoon of grained mustard

1 tablespoon of olive oil

juice of 1/2 a lemon

Salt and pepper to flavour – if you wish.


Don’t wash the chicken drumsticks just add to a roasting tin.

Slice carrots into 2 or 3 using a diagonal cutting angle

Half baby turnips or chop the turnip

Slice the radish

Mix the mustard, oil and lemon juice and rub on the vegetables and chicken drumsticks

Roast in an oven gas mark 7 for 20-30 minutes – check drumsticks are cooked by ensuring juices are running clear.

Sprinkle with rocket before serving

Serve with wholegrain rice – don’t forget to include some carbohydrate! 🙂
