If you have a brain you know stereotypes are stupid. They’re ignorant & juvenile. 9 out of 10 times the stereotypes we place upon people end up being wrong. This just leaves you feeling guilty for being “that person” who prematurely judged someone in the first place. It always happens which is why you shouldn’t do it.

 I say 9 out 10 times because there is one stereotype that’s pretty much spot on.

Nutrition majors love hummus.

I can say that because I am one. But if you did that would be stereotyping. Unless of course you are a nutrition major too. Then you can say it because you are probably eating hummus right now.  Maybe there are a few outliers who despise hummus & are also aspiring nutrition professionals; but I bet they secretly wished they loved hummus.

There are a million brands of hummus at the grocery store & I’ve probably tried them all. But I really encourage you to try your own. It’s really easy & surprisingly a lot more economical. All you need is a food processor & your deepest darkest hummus dreams can become a reality. Like roasted carrot & ginger hummus.

Roasted Carrot and Ginger Hummus

Ingredients

  • 2 Carrots

  • 1/4 c. Tahini
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • Juice from Half of a Lemon
  • 1/2 c. Water
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste
  • Dried Herbs & Paprkia for Garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Cut carrots in half & rub with olive oil & salt on lined baking sheet (you could place the garlic on here too if you want roasted garlic but you would have to take them out earlier than the carrots so they don't burn).
  3. Roast carrots for about 23 min until browned, fragrant, & cooked through.
  4. Place drained & rinsed chickpeas, tahini, water, garlic, salt, & lemon juice in food processor. Puree.
  5. When mixed together, add carrots & ½ tsp of ginger. Puree until completely smooth & mixed together.
