This is an awesome and easy to make dip. Lentils are high in protein, vitamins, and minerals as well as both soluble and insoluble fiber. Sesame seeds, the main ingredient in tahini, are an excellent source of calcium. This hummus is a healthy, satisfying snack that can be enjoyed anytime with cut vegetables like celery, carrots, cucumbers, jicama or any other of your favorite veggies.
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin Olive oil
2 Tbsp. Tahini
4 Tbsp. freshly squeezed Lemon juice
2 cups cooked Lentils
1 Tbsp. Celtic Sea Salt
Lemon pepper or Black pepper to taste
2 cloves Garlic
½ - ¼ tsp. Cayenne pepper
preparation & directions
1. Cook your Lentils. Cook 2 cups of Lentils as directed and drain.
2. Combine and Blend. Combine the Olive Oil, Tahini, Lemon Juice, Garlic, and Lentils in a blender or food processor. You may need to add more oil(or if it is too thick a little chicken stock) at this point to make it the consistency you like. Always taste and adjust flavors like more lemon juice or garlic.
3. Add other ingredients. Now add your Salt, Pepper (I always prefer fresh ground), and Cayenne Pepper. Blend thoroughly.
4. Plate and serve. Transfer to a plate or bowl and drizzle with Olive Oil. You can also add a few lentils on top, paprika for color, curry powder or parsley.
