Roasted carrots and parsnips with maple dressing

Roasting is the best way
to extract all the sweetness from a winter veg,
and who doesn’t like roasted vegetables? Ditch the potatoes on this one and try some roasted roots….Drizzle with extra
virgin olive oil and add a kicker of maple syrup, and you are sweet !Serve them with my #roast chicken
with tarragon butter.

Not a parsnip fan use a Swede, or turnip, they will love this flavour combo.
