Can there ever be enough different hummus variations? I think not. I've tried plenty of different ones, but not a red lentil one, until I recently had some with a meal out. I became very curious wanting to make some myself. In this recipe I basically just substituted the chick peas in my basic homemade hummus with red lentils and it became a really nice dip. I'm sure I will perfect the recipe more with the time, if I'll feel like it.
1 cup red lentils
2 garlic cloves
½ lemon's juice
1 tsp salt
Sprinkle of smoked paprika
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp tahini
Cook the lentils until they are soft, drain and cool them down.
Purée all ingredients into an even paste.
Serve the hummus with some vegetables, flatbreads, crispbreads, sandwiches etc.
