Total time
Red lentils are a great source of fiber and protein, and they make for a great hummus, especially if you don't like the heaviness of chick peas.
Recipe type: Quick & Easy
Serves: 1
  • 1/3 cup dry red lentils
  • 1 cup water
  • Extra virgin olive oil (or use a couple splashes of veggie broth as a substitute)
  • Salt & pepper
  • Paprika
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • 1/2 tsp-1 tsp Tahini
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Nutritional yeast
  1. Rinse and drain lentils.
  2. Bring water to a boil and add lentils.
  3. Let them cook on high for a minute, then turn down to simmer and cover with a lid. Cooks for 15-25 minutes or until water is absorbed and lentils are soft.
  4. Transfer to food processor.
  5. Add olive oil, S&P, paprika, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, and nutritional yeast. Blend until smooth. I don’t measure out the seasonings, I just use dabs and sprinkles and pinches, tasting occasionally and adjusting from there.
  6. Serve with bean chips or raw veggies. Enjoy!
