Maple syrup baked parsnips

This is parsnips for people who had parsnips ruined for them by being forced to eat them boiled, which is an outrage.  This isn’t something I usually do with vegetables (cover them in maple syrup that is) but I had some and it’s something that works particularly well with parsnips.

Maple Syrup Baked Parsnips 

5 parsnips (or however many)
big sloop of maple syrup, maybe 3-4 TBS?
olive oil (or butter)

Wash and chop the parsnips into large chunks.  Steam the parsnips until just tender.

Steam the parsnips - I didn't steam all of these in together like this, I just need the other bit of the steamer for something else when I took this picture

Put all the ingredients in a big baking tray, stir with your hands to combine, throw in the oven at 200° for 25-30 mins, or until nicely browned.  Tastes earthy and sweet, so lovely.

I served these with Cheese and silverbeet rolls and Great Green salad.
