PROTEIN PACKED HUMMUS

Hummus is one of life’s great pleasures. It’s creamy, tasty, healthy and makes sticks of vegetables even more delicious! We’ve made loads of hummus before but never with lentils. We thought we’d try making hummus with lentils and we’re glad we did because it was absolutely lush!

Ingredients
Method

Ingredients

Hummus

  • 1 cup dried red lentils (200g)
