  1. Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender.

  3. Serve with the parsnip “rice”.

  • 1.5 cups (275 g/10oz) peeled parsnips
  • 1.5 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon macadamia nuts
  • 1 tablespoon light miso

    I made this today for me and my son. We both loved it. I am already a huge fan of cauliflower ‘rice’ but this parsnip version is much tastier. Remarkably clever.

    Hi, I’m just starting to try to incorporate more raw food onto our diet, I’d luv to try a lot of these recipies but don’t have a dehydrator, is there something else I can do or no? Thankyou

      If you have a fan oven I have heard of some people leaving it with the door open on a low temp.

      It won’t be quite as raw, but you may be able to make it work whilst you see if a dehydrator is something you want to invest in.
