|2 cups||Frozen Cherries (or use any fresh or frozen fruit)|
|2 tsp||Fresh Ginger, grated|
|1 tsp||Lemon Zest|

|1 tsp||Ground Cinnamon|
|1/4 tsp||Sea Salt|
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix the filling ingredients together and place into a greased 9 inch by 9 inch baking dish or into 8 greased ramekins.
- For the topping, combine the flour, parsnips, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and sea salt together. Work the butter though with your hands, breaking it up into small pieces.
- Slowly combine the remaining ingredients in just until it forms a sticky dough. Do not over work or it will become dense.

- Increasing the fibre in your diet may help you control your weight, lower your risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease and lower the risk of some types of cancer.
- Aim to get at least 30 grams of fibre each day. To reach this goal, you will need to have at least 5 servings of vegetables and fruit and at least 3 small servings of whole grains each day. (1 serving of vegetables is 1 cup of salad or ½ cup cooked or raw vegetables; 1 serving of fruit is ½ cup chopped or 1 medium fruit; 1 serving of whole grains is 1 slice of whole grain bread or ½ cup brown rice).
- It’s important to increase the fibre in your diet slowly so your body can get used to it. Start with increasing the fibre in 1 meal or snack and once you’re comfortable with that, increase the fibre in another meal or snack.
