Ingredients
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled
  • 3 medium parsnips, peeled
  • 2 baby leeks, trimmed and halved lengthways
  • 6 tsp honey, warmed
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

  • Cut the carrots and parsnips into batons roughly 7cm long and 1cm thick. Mix together, then gather into small bundles. Wrap a strand of the baby leek around the middle of each and tie to fasten.

  • Lay the bundles on the baking tray. Brush with the honey, sprinkle over the thyme and drizzle with olive oil, then bake for 25 minutes until crisp.
