A creamy hummus spread or dip made with roasted parsnips (instead of traditional chickpeas) and accented with lemon and the smoky flavor of pimenton (smoked paprika).



  • 1 pound parsnips, peeled and cut into small pieces (about 3/4-inch)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
  • 1/4 cup almond butter or tahini
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 small cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 11/2 teaspoons pimenton (smoked paprika)


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. On a large, rimmed baking sheet, toss the parsnips with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Roast in the preheated oven for 12 to 16 minutes until very easily pierced with tines of a fork. Let cool completely.
  3. Place the cooled parsnips, almond butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, smoked paprika, remaining olive oil and remaining salt in a food processor. Process until smooth. Adjust salt to taste. Eat!


Storage: Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
