Parsnip Hummus: A Seasonal Winter Vegetable Hummus Variation


I absolutely adore hummus – and it is really so completely easy to make. All you need is a food processor or a blender and a handful ingredients and that’s it! This time I made a little seasonal and local winter vegetable variation with Swiss Parsnips.

Ingredients (as a side or starter for 3-4 people):
2 parsnips
1 ½ Tins of chickpeas (drained, washed with water)
2 tablespoons Tahini
2 cloves of garlic (pressed)
1 teaspoon salt
6-8 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons water
Possibly some lemon juice

Peel the parsnips, add a little salt and drizzle with oil. Cook the parsnips in the oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes (until soft). Put chickpeas, tahini, garlic, salt, olive oil, water and soft parsnips into a food processor or a tall container and puree. Taste and season with salt and lemon juice – and enjoy!
