Red Lentil Hummus
I love hummus, it’s healthy, tasty, packed with protein and good fats and the right amount of the right carbs. I have made several version of hummus: the classic roasted garlic one, the white beans and basil or my favorite beetroot hummus!
Today I decided to try make hummus using red lentils. Lentils have more fiber and protein than chickpeas so they make it even healthier!
Give it a try!
- 1 cup of cooked red lentils
- 1 clove chopped garlic
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- Salt and pepper
- chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
Grab some nice red lentil and boil them to get 1 full cup
Place all ingredients in a blender a process until creamy
Transfer into a container, drizzle some more olive oil and dust with red chili powder and ground black pepper
Store in your fridge for up to 3 days. Serve it with pita bread and fresh veggies.
