– parsnips, cut into 1 inch pieces – garlic cloves – avocado oil, coconut oil, or ghee – ghee, olive oil, or butter – almond milk


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a large baking sheet toss cut parsnips and garlic cloves with 1 1/2 tablespoons avocado oil.

Roast in the oven for 30-40 minutes, until tender and  just barely starting to brown. Don’t let them brown too much or crunchy  bits will form and won’t blend well into the parsnips.

Alternatively, you can steam the parsnips and garlic  until tender. This is a great option if your oven is already in use or  if you don’t have a food processor or blender.

While waiting for parsnips to roast add all other ingredients except for the fresh herbs to your food processor or blender.

Once parsnips are tender, remove them from the oven and add to the food processor with all the other ingredients.
