Step 1: Preheat oven to 200C.

Step 2: Toss parsnips, garlic, red onion, rosemary and apple with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3: Place in a large roasting tray and roast for 30 minutes or until all vegetables are golden and have softened. Remove the woody rosemary stems.
