Sticky sausage and parsnip traybake

An all in one dish, I absolutely adore parsnips.


  • 4 parsnips, peeled and cut into wedges
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 3 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 1½ tbsp oil
  • 6 sausages (I used Pork and caramelised onion) – use gluten-free sausages if required 
  • ½ tbsp sherry or red wine vinegar
  • 1 x 250g pouch cooked Puy lentils
  • 4 handfuls of kale (about 100g)


Heat the oven to 220 ̊C, fan 200 ̊C, gas 7. Toss the parsnips with the honey, 1 teaspoon of mustard, 1⁄2 tablespoon of oil and some seasoning. Spread out in a large shallow roasting tin. Add the sausages, pricking each a couple of times with a fork. Roast for 20 minutes, turning halfway.

Meanwhile whisk together the remaining olive oil, mustard and vinegar to make a tangy dressing. Season to taste

Tip the lentils and then the kale into the roasting tin. Sprinkle over 2 tablespoons of water then return to the oven for a further 3-4 minutes until the kale has wilted and the lentils are heated through. Pour in the dressing then mix everything together to serve
