Herby Parsnip Wedges with Chilli Tomato Dipping Sauce

These were addictive, and possibly a great way to get kids to eat vegetables.  Another way would be to strap them to a chair and force-feed them.  It is probably just as well I am not a mother..........Anyway, this is adapted from a Riverford recipe.  You steam wedges of parsnip, cool, then egg and breadcrumb them.  A bit fiddly I know, but I just bunged the breadcrumbs in a plastic bag and tossed the egged wedges all together.  I also added finely-chopped rosemary to the breadcrumbs.  Roast in a high oven, sprayed or drizzled with some olive oil, until light brown and crisp - about 20 minutes.  Best place them on baking parchment.  Serve with a thick tomato sauce - onion, garlic, a tin of tomatoes, a pinch of sugar, and quite a bit of finely-chopped red chilli, all cooked with a little olive oil until thick and reduced.  Dunk the parsnips in and chomp away!
