Honey Roast Parsnips

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Parsnips are a bit of a forgotten veg. Their faint flavour usually disappears amongst the spuds or carrots that we tend to reach for first. 

This recipe makes them very much the star. It's quite a winter favourite of ours and we always serve them with Christmas dinner. They'll go great with grilled meat, chicken or fish.
The recipe below will feed 2 people.

• 2 medium parsnips. Topped, tailed and peeled then quartered, lengthways
• 4 sprays of Fry Light One Cal spray oil
• 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
• 5g / 1 teaspoon of honey
• Salt & Black pepper

  1. Turn the oven to 180°C.
  2. Spray 2 sprays of Fry Light One Cal spray oil into the base of a casserole dish and add the parsnips.
  3. Bake them in the in the oven for 20 minutes.
  4. Carefully remove them form the oven and sprinkle the parsnips with the thyme, salt and pepper and mix around.
  5. Drizzle the honey over the parsnips and return them to the oven for another 20 minutes.
  6. Divide between two plates and serve.
