The winter months are all about the hearty root vegetables; potatoes, carrots, swedes and parsnips, this week we are celebrating the parsnip. Parsnips are very robust and can take a lot of additional flavours. I have gone for the combination of parsnip and apple, this may sound unusual, but bear with me here, it is really quite delicious. If you don’t fancy trying apple, spiced parsnip is also a lovely alternative. Just add a few of your favourite spices to the pan when you sweat off the onions and garlic; garam masala, coriander seed and cumin would work well.
