  1. Put the carrots and parsnips in a clean tea towel and squeeze as much liquid out as possible, then tip into a medium mixing bowl. Stir in 80g mayonnaise, the mustard, honey and flour; season well.
  2. Put the remaining mayonnaise, the garlic and parsley in a small bowl and mix until well combined; set aside.
  3. Heat half the oil in a large frying pan set over a medium heat and drop in 2 tbsp of the veg mixture in a pile, pressing down lightly with the back of a spatula to flatten. Repeat to make 4 fritters and fry for 2-3 mins each side, then remove to a plate and keep warm. Add the remaining oil and repeat twice with the remaining mixture to make 12 fritters in total. Serve with the garlic mayo and an extra scattering of parsley.
