For the polenta crusted potatoes and parsnips

  1. Cut each potato into four and place in a saucepan. Cover with cold water, bring to the boil and par boil for 10 minutes. Drain and toss in a colander to fluff up the outside of the potatoes.
  2. Slice the parsnips into batons and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Add the par boiled potatoes, drizzle with one tablespoon of olive oil and scatter over the polenta and rosemary leaves. Toss to evenly coat and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook in the oven for 35 minutes or until golden brown.

For the shredded garlic and chilli sprouts

  1. Heat a drizzle of oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the shredded sprouts and toss to evenly cook for 4-5 minutes. Add the chilli flakes and garlic and cook for a further 1 minute. Season to taste.

To serve

TIP: For extra festive cheer add Quorn pigs in blankets to your dish by wrapping Quorn Cocktail Sausages in Quorn Smokey Ham. Place a sage leaf onto each sausage, wrap with a strip of smokey ham and secure with a cocktail stick. Cook for 10 minutes and serve!
