Roasted fish and all the trimmings
Have you ever tried your roast with a fishy twist? This option offers an ocean of flavour – and takes less than half the time to cook from start to finish.
Enjoy your favourite seafood alongside sprouts, parsnips and your usual helping of carrots. A sprinkle of rosemary and a drizzle of olive oil will really set this dish off (but maybe skip the gravy for this one?).

A plant-based delight
We now see more and more people turning to plant-based options in the kitchen – but that doesn’t mean you have to give up your beloved Sunday roast! And, don’t worry, you don’t have to limit yourself to a simple nut roast, either.
Today, there are thousands of recipes which offer fun and unconventional vegan options to replace meat and spice up the dinner plate each weekend, from stuffed roasted cauliflower to sweet potato parcels.
The real deal for us, however, is this beetroot and squash wellington, packed with homemade kale pesto. Serve with the usual veg and lashings of gravy.
Got a bit of a sweet tooth? This Coca Cola ham is a Nigella favourite, and will be a showstopper on the dinner table. It’s also incredibly easy to make, which means it could easily become a Sunday roast regular.
Our advice? When baking this one, maybe avoid honey-roasting the veg – one can only take so much sweetness on the roast dinner plate!
A Mediterranean twist
In the summer months, a hearty roast isn’t always that appetising, especially on a swelteringly-hot day.
So, on those days where you still want a little taste (without the stuffed belly that usually comes after a good roast), try this lighter take on the nation’s favourite meal, with melt-in-the-mouth, slow-roasted lamb, feta and peppers.
All about the cheese
If you’re all about the cauliflower cheese side when it comes to your roast, change it up with cheesy polenta goodness instead.
This option of slow-roasted lamb and chargrilled veg is perfectly topped off with this rich flavour, and has all the colour of an Italian masterpiece
