Recipe by Anjum Ullah of Fully Money

Getting the right ingredients

This recipe required garlic-infused olive oil, if you don’t have it then why not mix some minced garlic with your olive oil in that part of the recipe. The roast parsnips won’t be quite the same but the flavours will be similar.

If you prefer to save a little money you could buy salad cheese at the supermarket which is usually a cheaper version of cheese very similar to feta cheese and a lot cheaper.

The pomegranate seeds really do make this recipe but that doesn’t mean you need to buy a pomegranate. You can usually buy the seeds in a pack in the prepared fruit section of the supermarket or frozen with smoothie ingredients. This way you just use what you need and save the rest for another day. I love them in a salad.

Chopped coriander is not essential to the recipe but will always make it taste better. Why not buy a coriander plant and use it whenever you cook. If you keep watering it when needed it can grow for a long time on the windowsill and is cheaper than buying the cut coriander every time you want it for a recipe.

Step by step instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 5. Then line an oven tray with baking/parchment paper.

Peel the parsnips and then cut them into roughly even-sized medium chunks.

Place parsnips onto the baking tray and coat generously with the garlic olive oil, add the cumin and coriander seeds.

Add salt and pepper to the desired amount.

Fully coat the parsnips in the mixture until they are fully covered. 

Spread them out in the tray to ensure they have enough room to cook through and then let them cook for 30 minutes. 

Whilst they are cooking, zest and juice the orange. Add the honey and fully mix together with the orange juice and zest.

Once the roast parsnips have cooked, remove them from the oven and pour the orange and honey mixture over them until fully coated.
