This is a lovely twist on a recipe that my mum often made for family get-togethers. Try to find nice small firm parsnips – they’ll have a wonderful, almost nutty, flavour.

 

 

Heat oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
Mix together the polenta, Parmesan, nutmeg and a good grinding of black pepper, and set aside.
Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil, then tip in the parsnips and cook for 6 minutes or until just tender. Drain and then while parsnips are still hot, toss with the Parmesan mixture to coat.
Set a large roasting tin over the hob and melt the butter. Add the parsnips and quickly turn to coat in the melted butter. Put the tin in the oven and roast for 20 minutes, then turn the parsnips over and cook for another 20 minutes or so until cooked through and golden.
