Glamorous Glutton:
Recipe type: Vegetable
Serves: 4 servings
  • 500g Parsnips, peeled and sliced
  • 3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp toasted sesame seeds ( I bought mine toasted but you can toast in the oven in a dry pan)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 220c, 200c fan, gas mark 7, 425f
  2. Cut the parsnip roughly in half where it begins to narrow, Cut each half into thin slices lengthways, then cut each of these slices into narrow strips - matchsticks.
  3. Toss in a bowl with the olive oil and sesame seeds and spread on a baking sheet in a single layer. Scatter over any loose sesame seeds and bake for 20 - 25 minutes until starting to go golden brown and crisp.
