  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Toss the chopped veg with 2½ tbsp oil and the sage in a roasting tin; season. Tuck in the halved garlic bulb and roast for 20 mins.
  2. Turn the veg, then add the onion and half the lemon juice. Arrange the sausages on top, drizzle with the remaining oil and roast for 25 mins.
  3. Turn the veg again, making sure the sausages are on top. Mix together the honey and mustard, pour over everything in the tin and roast for a further 15 mins.
  4. Reserve 520g root vegetables for the next day. Squeeze the soft garlic from the skins and mix through the yogurt along with 1 tbsp lemon juice; season. Scatter the sausages and veg with the parsley and hazelnuts, if using, and serve with the garlic yogurt. Use leftovers in this Autumn panzanella salad.
