I have been pouring maple syrup over my porridge most mornings recently and I'm loving it! In fact, I've been loving it so much that I have been seeking out more uses for maple syrup. I often make roast vegetables as a side dish and I think they are a great accompaniment to a meal. But I have been using the same recipe for a while so I decided to try something a little new recently and so threw in some maple syrup. Great results!
I like to make roast carrots and parsnips but sometimes throw in peppers and shallots as well. It's all about personal preference!
2 large carrots
2 large parsnips
1-2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 190 C
Chop the carrots and parsnips into chunks. I would recommend par-boiling the carrots for 5 minutes before roasting.
Add about 1 tbsp of good quality olive oil and 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup.
Season with salt and pepper and add some finely chopped garlic.
Roast for 20-25 minutes
Serve with meat, fish or more vegetables!
