I wanted to create a sweet roast parsnip recipe without using honey to keep it strictly vegan.
I was overjoyed by how well these work. The citrus tang from the marmalade works incredibly well with parsnip and in my opinion the flavour is far superior to the honey roasted equivalent.
Parsnips are always delicious. However they are at their best after they have experienced a frost when they start converting their starches into sugars and as a result become sweeter.
Parsnips are rich in vitamins and minerals, however most of these are near the skin, so either scrub them or peel them very lightly. They are particularly noted as being very high in potassium. They also contain a resectable levels of antioxidants and dietary fibre.
