Serves 4 as a side dish
What you need:
1 tbs flour (we used gluten free)
1 tbs runny honey
Glug of olive oil
Fresh thyme leaves to serve.
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C.
Meanwhile, scrub and wash the parsnips well. Cut in half lengthways, and then place in a large saucepan and cover with salted water.
Bring to the boil and cook for 5 minutes. Drain.
Sprinkle the flour and honey, as well as a generous glug of olive oil on the parsnips and toss to coat.
Season generously with salt and pepper.
Roast for about 40 minutes or until tender inside and crispy on the outside. Turn halfway through the cooking time.
To serve, sprinkle with some fresh thyme leaves.
