  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Toss the parsnips with the oil, garlic and curry powder on a large baking tray. Roast for 30 mins, stirring halfway, until tender and golden and the tips are slightly crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt with the lime zest, juice and some seasoning in a small bowl.
  3. Transfer the parsnips to a serving platter and scatter with the chilli and coriander. Serve with the zesty lime yogurt.

Need to know: Very large parsnips can have a woody core: save these for stews. To make this a vegan dish, switch out Greek yogurt for a dairy-free alternative.
