  1. Karen Marino says

    I haven’t tried parsnips but this is the second recipe I’ve seen with them that looks interesting. Vegetables were not a big part of meals growing up and I feel at a little disadvantage with figuring them out. Thansk for all your ideas!

  2. Christina says

    I’ve been wanting a paleo substitute for the white bean dip I make each spring–this is perfect! Try adding finely chopped garlic scapes!

  3. Kimberly says

    Gotta try this. We all used hummus as a staple in my family pre-paleo, but one daughter in particular has been hummus-deprived! Thanks!

  4. Susan Hatstat says

    Cant wait to try this. I am not a hummus lover because I do not like “beans” so I am excited to try.

  5. Samantha says

    Since starting Paleo the beginning of the year, this is one thing that I missed, can’t wait to try with Parsnips, it looks yummy.

    I think this recipe sounds awesome! Hummus used to be favorite before “going paleo”, so I would love a good replacement. I also love parsnips, so I’m super excited about this recipe!

  7. Stef says

    Hummus is a favorite in our house. I’ve always made it a traditional way with chick peas, but this recipe using parsnips looks delicious. I can hardly wait to find parsnips at the market and try this out!

  8. Kelsey Heathers says

    This sounds so delish! I love hummus and this is a really interesting flavor combination. I am eager to try this! 🙂

  9. Sarah T says

    I’m new to paleo and am sad to let go of some of my favorite snack foods. This looks like a good place to start with finding replacements!

  10. Jordan says

    This looks awesome! I was wondering what to do with the rest of the parsnips I had lying around in the fridge!

  11. Sarah says

    Never thought to use parsnips for hummus but it looks delish! I’ve missed eating hummus since switching to paleo.

  12. Abby says

    Oh yay! I was just thinking I wanted something creamy like hummus. And I love parsnips, so this is perfecto! (Wish I thought of it!)
