Sticky, golden and coated in crunchy sesame seeds, these parsnips are not your average side dish. Punchy miso and fragrant spring onions lend an aromatic twist, perfect for stealing the show at your Sunday roast. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Line a shallow roasting tin with foil, making sure it hangs over the edges.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the miso paste with the honey, sesame oil, olive oil and sesame seeds. Add the parsnips and toss to combine. Pour into the lined tray and enclose the parsnips, using an extra piece of foil if necessary.
  3. Cook for 15 mins, then remove from the oven, open up the foil and toss the parsnips. Add the spring onions, return to the oven and cook for a further 15 mins, or until the parsnips are sticky, golden and tender. Once cooked, remove and toss with the parsley to serve. 

Tip: This tasty miso sauce also goes well with roasted carrots and sprouts.
