EASY ROAST PARSNIPS
- 500 g Parsnips Peeled & halved
- 1 tbsp Semolina
- 1 tbsp Honey
- 1 tbsp Maple syrup
- 1 tsp White wine vinegar
- Pinch of kosher salt
- 2 tbsp Sunflower oil
- 2 tbsp Butter
- 3 Sprigs fresh thyme
- Preheat your oven to 170°C/340°F
- Wash or peel your parsnips, then top and tail them. Using a sharp knife cut your parsnips in half lengthways, and if they are large parsnips, cut them in half again. Bring a large pan of salted water to a boil and boil your parsnips for 5 minutes. Drain your parsnips in a colander and set aside for 5 minutes500 g Parsnips
- In a large mixing bowl, add semolina, honey, maple syrup, white wine vinegar, and salt. Add your parsnips to the bowl, and toss until they are all evenly coated. On a baking sheet, place your coated parsnips as a single layer, ensuring that they don't touch each other. Add with sunflower oil, nobs of butter, fresh thyme sprigs, kosher salt, and roast for 40 minutes, turning halfway through to ensure an even roasting. When your roast parsnips are ready, they will have turned a lovely golden brown and should be crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, but not burnt. Serve immediately. Enjoy!1 tbsp Semolina, 1 tbsp Honey, 1 tbsp Maple syrup, 1 tsp White wine vinegar, Pinch of kosher salt, 2 tbsp Sunflower oil, 2 tbsp Butter, 3 Sprigs fresh thyme
- Keep them apart
When cooking your parsnips, make sure they don’t touch and always keep them to a single layer or you’ll have mushy parsnips instead of the deliciously crispy ones that we all love
- Get ahead
Peel them the day before and store them covered in cold water or cook them and freeze them up to 2 months before you need them
