Maple & Thyme Glazed Parsnips

I love the build up to Christmas as a foodie there are so many festive recipes to discover, cook and share. I will be posting a number of recipes leading up to Christmas. This recipe is a family favourite – even my brother,  never a fan of parsnips,  likes this dish!

  • 3 parsnips, washed, peeled, topped & tailed
  • 1-2 dessertspoons maple syrup
  • small bunch of fresh thyme, washed, leaves removed
  • 1 dessertspoon olive oil
  • sea salt & black pepper, freshly ground


  • Set the oven to 190 degrees C (370 F)
  • Quarter the parsnips, remove the inner woody core and cut into strips
  • Put the oil and thyme into an oven proof dish
