These Caramelised Mustard Roasted Parsnips and Chestnuts are the perfect Christmas side dish. The sugar gives a sticky glaze, and the mustard contrasts brilliantly with the parsnips and chestnuts.
Pre-heat oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas Mark 6.
Par-boil the parsnips - place in boiling water for about 5 minutes to allow them to soften a little. Then drain.
Put all the ingredients, including the parsnips, in a baking tray and mix thoroughly, making sure the parsnips are fully covered with all the ingredients.
Roast for around 45 minutes, tossing occasionally, or until the edges of the parsnips have browned and they are a bit sticky from the sugar.
