Celeriac, Potato and Carrot - Roasted - very easy

I love Celeriac but apart from either soup or mashing it, I wasn't sure what else to do with it.  I decided to roast it with some other veg, and it was delicious.  Here's the idea .....

Oven: 190/200 deg. C
Ingredients and instructions: - enough for two/three (or possibly one!)

1 celeriac  - peeled, thickly sliced, then halved.
3 or 4 carrots - peeled, thickly sliced (at an angle is nice)
1 large potato  - peeled, thickly sliced, halved
salt and black pepper
some good olive oil, and a knob of butter
small amount of water in base of ovenproof dish.

Place all the veg into a buttered ovenproof dish, cover with foil, baste from time to time, and cook until very well cooked through and beginning to go brown.  You can take the foil off just to brown the veg a little more. 

You can lower the oven temperature - cover the dish - the longer you leave the veg to cook, the more delicious they are.  (Though don't leave them till they shrivel up :) )
