Glazed Parsnips and Carrots with Pistachio

glazed parsnips and carrots with pistachios

Everyone agreed that this glazed parsnips side dish was the best part of Christmas dinner!

8 medium parsnips (you can of course use bigger/smaller and adjust quantities)
8 medium carrots
a little sunflower oil to rub
a couple of teaspoons of maple or golden syrup
a teaspoon of rough seasalt
a handful of natural pistachios (not salted or roasted)

Peel/scrape the vegetables and cut into quarters, once lengthways and once across the middle. Rub them with oil and place in roasting tin. Drizzle syrup. Sprinkle salt and pistachios. Roast in a hot oven for about half an hour.

‘Vegetarian Christmas’ by Rose Elliot. Not exclusively vegan but there is a plethora of vegan delights included and most of the lacto-ovo recipes are easily ‘veganisable’. Our favourite Christmas dinner of Chestnut and Red wine pate en croute is one of many included here along with lots of advice on taking the work out of Christmas catering. This book is full of ideas for lots of special touches which can be prepared early and frozen – a firm favourite. Now out of print but the hardcover is available cheaply from both UK and USA Amazons below and has lots of lovely photos throughout 🙂 We love this book so much we even wrote a blog post on it!

  1. I did sprouts quite similar to this… roast for 20 mins w/ olive oil drizzled on top. After 20 mins add 1 spoon maple syrup and chopped pecans and roast for a further ten mins. Even my mother in law who hates sprouts loved them and my 2 and 6 year old :o) I shall deffo try the roasted carrots, ‘snips and pistachios though.
