- Preheat oven to 200°C or 180° fan-forced. Place parsnip, sweet potato, honey, cinnamon and half the oil in a bowl and toss to coat. Place mixture on a large baking tray and bake for 30–40 minutes or until tender and golden.
- Meanwhile, combine remaining oil and garlic in a shallow glass or ceramic bowl. Add lamb and turn to coat. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook lamb for 4–5 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover lamb with foil and set aside to rest for 5 minutes before slicing thickly.
