It’s a slight twist on a classic.
Classic hummus is made with chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) but this version uses lentils instead.
The lentils give the hummus a little more body and a deep, rich, earthy flavor. And while it only takes 5 minutes to make, you have to be sure you have some pre-cooked lentils on hand.
It also just so happens to be vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, low in carbs, and packed with protein. It’s a clean eaters dream boat.
Try serving this along side some fresh fish or chicken, shmeared in a veggie wrap, or along side some fresh cut veggies and pita.
