Carrots and Parsnips with Apple

This recipe is ok but next time will be great. Next time I will double the apple mixture and when all the ingredients are mixed,  I will mash them.
1 lb carrots, cut diagonally into 1/2 inch slices
1 lb parsnips, cut diagonally into 1/2 inch slices
1 tbsp olive oil
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2 inch dice
1 tsp pure maple syrup
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Steam the carrots and parsnips until just tender, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the apple, maple syrup, lemon juice, and nutmeg. cover and cook until the apple is softened, about 4 minutes.
Add the steamed carrots and parsnips and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir gently to mix well and heat through. Serve immediately.
