Recipe by Georgina Hayden



1. Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5 and oil a 20cm baking dish. Place a large nonstick pan over a medium heat and add a good glug of olive oil. Add the onion and sauté for 5–10 minutes until softened but not coloured.



2. Meanwhile shred the sage and add to the pan along with the parsnips, a good splash of cider and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Place a lid on the pan and leave for 10 minutes to soften the parsnips. Remove the lid, add the apple and cook for another couple of minutes. Spoon the mixture into a bowl and let cool completely.



3. Once cool, snip the ends off the sausages and squeeze the meat out of the skins into the bowl. Put the bread in a food processor and blitz to breadcrumbs. Add to the bowl with the egg and lemon zest. Using your hands, scrunch it all together until well combined then press into the prepared baking dish, cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.



4. Remove the foil, cook for a further 15 minutes then serve.

This is a great, simple stuffing recipe. It’s gluten free, but if that’s not an issue you just substitute it for normal bread.

Nutritional Information Amount per serving:

Calories

Calories are just a unit of energy. If you eat more than you use you can gain weight, or lose it if you don't eat enough. How much you need depends on your weight, gender and how active you are, but it's around 2,000 a day.

Carbs

Carbs are a great source of energy and, excluding foods such as potatoes, are made from grains - like bread, pasta and cereal. We all need carbs, but try to make them all wholegrain by sticking to brown bread, rice and pasta - they are much more nutritious.

Sugar

We all deserve a treat sometimes, but try to limit your sugar intake. Most of your sugar should come from raw fruit and milk, because they give us lots of nutrients too. Always check food labels so you know how much sugar you're eating.

Fat

We all need to eat a small amount of fat because it protects our organs and helps us grow. But we need to be careful about how much fat we eat and what kinds of fat, because in higher levels it's associated with weight gain, diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Saturates

Saturated or "bad fats" are in beef, pork, chicken skin, butter, cream and cheese. Too much can be bad for our heart and cholesterol levels, but unsaturated or "good fats" in fish, nuts, avocados and some oils can help keep our hearts healthy if eaten in moderation.

Protein

Protein helps our muscles to grow and repair, as well as providing you with essential amino acids. When it comes to protein, try to eat leaner sources such as chicken and fish or non-meat sources such as eggs, dairy, beans, nuts, seeds, tofu and pulses.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
