This parsnip dish is sweet and delicious - the perfect accompaniment to a roast or Christmas dinner!

Preparation time:  10 minutes

Cooking time:  45 minutes

Serves: 6


3 tbsp sunflower oil
1kg parsnips, peeled and trimmed
salt and pepper
3 tbsp clear honey
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
finely grated zest 1 medium orange
2 tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley


Pre-heat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6.

Place the oil in a roasting tin and heat in the oven for up to 5 minutes.

Cut the parsnips lengthways in half or quarters to form even-sized pieces.

Carefully place the parsnips into the hot oil, and turn to coat. Roast for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and add the honey, soy sauce and orange zest.

Toss to coat and return to the oven for a further 10 minutes until caramelized. Put into a serving dish and pour over any pan juices. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Tip:  Peel and cut the parsnips a day ahead and store in the fridge in a sealed plastic bag, with the air removed, until ready to use.
