Date-Mustard Dressing Oil-Free Recipe


  • 2 large parsnips
  • 2 shallots
  • ½ cup vegetable broth
  • 8 dates, pitted
  • 2 cups of water
  • ½ cup stone ground mustard
  • ½ cup yellow mustard


  • 1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Peel the parsnips and cut them into 3-4 inch long strips, then place them in a baking pan. Rough chop the shallots and add them to the parsnips. Pour ½ cup of the vegetable broth over the parsnips. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil, then place in the oven for 45 minutes.
  • 2. In a small pot cook the dates and water over low heat for 20-25 minutes. Mash the dates as much as possible during the cooking process in order to extract as much flavor as possible. Strain the date pulp out and save the liquid.
  • 3. In a high speed blender, combine the roasted parsnips, date water, the mustards and blend until smooth. If the dressing is too thick add a bit more water.
