Roasted Parsnip Hummus

Roasted Parsnip Hummus – Parsnip Recipe | Healthy Eats by Jennie

In my organic delivery box from Misfits Market, I received a lot of parsnips! Typically, when I make parsnips, I roast them along with other veggies. Parsnips are also delicious in soup recipes and as a substitute for mashed potatoes. But I wanted to experience parsnips in a different way this time, so I thought that incorporating the roasted parsnips within a hummus dip would make for an amazing Parsnip Recipe! Roasting parsnips brings out the sweetness in them, which brings a touch of sweetness to the Parsnip Recipe.  Pair this Parsnip Recipe with pretzels or tortilla chips as a healthy way to fulfill your sweet and salty craving!

Ingredients

  • 15.5 oz can black beans rinsed and drained
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1 T ancho chipotle pepper adobo chili paste I used Wegman’s brand
  • 1 teas cumin
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 T tahini
  • 1 T olive oil plus a little extra to drizzle on top if desired
  • ½ cup water

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.

Recipe Notes

I used my Vitamix blender when I made this. You can also put garnish for serving as shown in the picture with chili powder and parsley (or you can use paprika and cilantro).  If you cannot find the chipotle chili paste, you can substitute with the adobo sauce from the canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and you can even throw in a chipotle pepper for more spice and chipotle flavor if desired. But I do recommend the paste, since it is a great ingredient to have on hand.

Caramelized Onion Hummus

Caramelized Onion Hummus
Prep time: 5 minutes

Caramelized Onion Hummus | Healthy Eats by Jennie

I love making different variations of Hummus! I also really love caramelized onions! I thought it would be a great idea to put them both together for a delicious Hummus treat! Turned out that I was right – this is amazing! This Hummus tastes great with grilled pita bread.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large red onions coarsely chopped
  • 2 T olive oil
  • ½ teas salt
  • ½ teas black pepper
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 1 15.5 oz can of chick peas drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • 3 T lemon juice
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 T olive oil

Directions:

  1. On medium-high heat in frying pan, sauté olive oil, onions, salt and pepper for 5 minutes (make sure you stir so the onions don’t burn).
  2. Reduce to medium and sauté for 10 more minutes (stirring occasionally – every few minutes).
  3. Add wine and reduce for 5 minutes (stirring occasionally).
  4. Reduce to low and let it continue to caramelize for 30 minutes (stirring occasionally).
  5. When onions are done, then add the onions and all ingredients to blender or food processor. (Vitamix makes the perfect Hummus!)

Notes:

I find that Hummus is best served at room temperature. After you keep it in the refrigerator for a while, take hour about a half hour before you want to eat it. Or if you can wait that long, you can pop it in the microwave for about 30-45 seconds.
