* 5 Tbsp vegetable oil

Step 1:

Preheat the oven

Set the oven to 200ºC (400ºF/ gas mark 6).

Step 2:

Heat the water

Place the medium pan, half full of water on a high heat. Add the salt and bring to the boil.

Step 3:

Heat the oil

Put the baking tray in the lowest part of the oven. Add the oil and leave it to heat.

Step 4:

Parboil the parsnips

Put the parsnips into the boiling water and cook for roughly 5 minutes, until not quite tender.

Step 5:


Place the colander in the sink and drain the parsnips well.

Step 6:

Roast the parsnips

Remove the baking tray from the oven and place the parboiled parsnips into the oil. Roll and turn them over in the hot oil, making sure that they are all well coated. Season with salt and a dash of black pepper. Place them into the lowest part of the oven and cook for 15 minutes. After this time, turn them once more with your tongs and cook for a further 15 minutes.

Step 7:


Once cooked, drain the parsnips onto a plate lined with kitchen roll.
