Maple Roasted Parsnips


The parsnip is a root vegetable that is a relative to the carrot, although much paler they do resemble each other.Typically parsnips are part of the main ingredient in a soup base or roasted for a richer flavor. For this dish the parsnips are roasted into a caramelized deliciously sticky texture, which makes them so moreish. You will not be able to resist them.
