Let the oven do the work with these quick and simple ingredient-focussed recipes from the River Cottage kitchen

In River Cottage Great Roasts, all you will need are good ingredients, an oven and some simple bakeware to create easy weeknight dinners, showstopping Sunday roasts, fuss-free breakfasts, tea-time treats and indulgent puds. Often only requiring one roasting tin and minimal prep, these are recipes that let the oven do the hard work, and leave you with very little washing up:

Spiced whole cauliflower with preserved lemon and yoghurt
Roast mushrooms with beer and dumplings
Pot roast brisket with orange and star anise
Ripped potato oven chips with smoked chilli and roast garlic dip
Creamy fish pie
Roasted cherry and almond crumble
Pears with ginger and toffee

Divided into chapters like Breakfast & Brunch, One-tray Wonders, Sunday Roast, Super Sides and Puddings, the recipes all harness the power of the oven to transform everyday ingredients into their more deliciously caramelised, roasted counterparts.
