Yield: Yields 2-1/2 cups
This spicy lentil dip is similar to ubiquitous hummus, but instead of using dried garbanzo beans, which require soaking and a long boiling time, it uses red lentils. Red lentils don’t need to be soaked, and they cook in a speedy 10 minutes. Because they are so much smaller than garbanzo beans, they also yield a smoother dip—silky smooth, in fact.
Make Ahead Tips
The cooled dip can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
