- 500g parsnips, peeled
- 75ml sunflower oil
- 40ml maple syrup (or agave syrup)
- Heat the oven to 190°C
- Cut the parsnips in halves or thirds crossways, then into halves or quarters lengthways, depending on their size. You should end up with lots of large parsnip batons.
- Put them into a roasting dish with the oil and turn them over in it.
- Pour the syrup over the top and roast them for 20 minutes, then turn them over and roast for another 20-25 minutes or until golden.
