1. Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). Place the parsnips, carrots, capsicums and onions in a large roasting pan. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and toss well to coat.

2. Place the butter, garlic and thyme in a small bowl and mix to combine. Dot the garlic butter over the vegetables. Roast for 40-45 minutes, or until lightly browned, tossing once or twice during cooking so vegetables brown evenly.

3. Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with small sprigs of thyme.
