lemony red lentil hummus
by Jackie Newgent | May 9, 2020 | 5 Comments
I’m pretty sure I eat more hummus than anyone I know. It’s what I grab whenever I need a quick fix or if I need to get in a bit more plant protein. And while I adore traditional hummus, I do like to mix things up every once in a while. I happened to be out of chickpeas, but I had dried red lentils on hand. So, of course, that meant red lentil hummus for me. Other than the chickpea to lentil swap, I make it with basically the same ingredients as my classic version. Though I do punch up the lemon to brighten the flavor.
This lemony red lentil hummus perfect as is. But I also like to serve it drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkled with fresh parsley leaves and lemon zest. My favorite way to eat it … scooped up with homemade pita chips, like my za’atar pita chips. Do make this twist on hummus your own by garnishing and enjoying however you like. Try it soon!
