  • 1kg parsnip, peeled and cut into thumb-width batons



    The fact that the parsnip is a member of the carrot family comes as no surprise – it looks…

  • 2 tsp English mustard powder
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 4 tbsp rapeseed oil

    If you want a light alternative to other cooking oils, rapeseed is a great choice and has…

  • about 3 tsp clear honey


  1. Boil the parsnips for 5 mins, then drain well and let them steam-dry for a few mins. Mix the mustard powder with the flour and plenty of seasoning. Toss the parsnips in the mix, then shake off any excess.

  2. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 – you can do this while the turkey is resting. Put the oil into one large, or even better 2, non-stick baking trays (the parsnips mustn’t be crowded if they’re to become really crisp), then heat in the oven for 5 mins. Carefully scoop the parsnips into the fat, turn them a few times, then roast for 30 mins or until golden and crisp. Drizzle the honey over the hot parsnips, give them a little shake, then scatter with flaky sea salt and tip into a serving dish.

Delicious parsnips! They even satisfied a fussy eater elderly mother, who after years of claiming she hated parsnips, helped herself to a second helping. Loved them. Will be making again. 5* Sorry "Rate this recipe" link doesn't seem to work tonight! :/

I put the honey on before roasting, and they needed 40 minutes to crisp up and go brown. Perhaps these 2 things were related.

Lovely roast parsnips, my first attempt & will be doing again. Have had roast parsnips elsewhere over the last few weeks & these were the best in comparison. Don't need to par boil for 10mins, 5 would probably be enough but otherwise spot on :-)

The best ever parsnip. Just make sure you use plenty of spices in the seasoning - I literally used 1/2 tsp of at least 7 different spices (garlic powder, onion powder, ginger powder, oregano, cumin powder, etc.)
