I would like to see parsnips used a lot more as they have great flavour. Here is a tip: try them pureed with vanilla. It is delicious. Or, you could use them in a soup with thyme, honey, stock and milk. In this traybake, the honey gives the sweet taste and the mustard is that bit tart.

Pork chops are good value and they cook quickly. Be sure to use quality assured Irish pork.
