  1. Pre heat the oven to 200°C
  2. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil. While you're waiting peel the parsnips and cut off both ends
  3. Cut each parsnip into approx 6cm lengths. Leave the thin end whole but cut the thicker pieces into 4 wedges. Place them in the boiling water and simmer until they are just tender (probably around 4 or 5 minutes)
  4. Drain the parsnips and place them in a decent sized bowl
  5. If you are using set honey put the 2 teaspoons in a small heatproof dish and place it in a shallow dish of hot water, until the honey has melted. There's no need to do this if you are using runny honey
  6. Season the parsnips with a little sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Spray with a decent amount of low calorie cooking spray then pour over the honey and mix well so that all the parsnips are coated
  7. Place on a nonstick baking tray (or a tray lined with foil) Give them one last spray with low calorie cooking spray and cook for 20 - 25 minutes (turning halfway through) or until they are crisp and golden
