I had a beautiful idea for this 'mash up' of previously posted Vegetarianized.com recipes (Roasted Carrot Soup and Hummus) after tasting a bland version at a restaurant this weekend. Feeling pretty done with Thanksgiving fare, this is a nice, light snack that’s big on flavor - not calories.

  • 1 lb carrots, cut into 2” pieces
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

    Now that looks yummy and healthy.

    I am amazed at some of the recipes I've seen lately: Take 2 cups of something healthy and tasty, add a stick of butter, a cup of sour cream and some shredded cheese…have 911 on speed dial…enjoy!
