3. Wash, trim and peel the parsnips. Slice them into long lengths about 21/2 cm wide. Add them to the celeriac. Pop on a lid. Bring to the boil. Boil for 2 mins, then drain them.
4. Tip the celeriac and parsnips into the roasting tin. Shake in the sachet of cumin seeds and season with salt and pepper. Shake the pan a few times to coat the veg in the seeds. Roast for 40-45 mins till golden and crisp.
