PROTEIN PACKED HUMMUS
We reckon hummus is one of life’s greatest pleasures. It’s creamy, tasty, healthy and takes sticks of vegetables from basic to bangin’. We’ve made our fair share of hummus but never with lentils. Trust us when we say that it’s an excellent way to go and makes for a dip that is packed to the gills with protein. Win-win.
- 1 cup dried red lentils (200g)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 3 tbsp tahini
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 lemon
- Salt and pepper to taste
Crudites (veggie sticks)
- Veggies chips or breadsticks of your choice
Prepare the lentils. Cook them according to packet instructions. When they're tender, strain them through a sieve and leave them to cool to room temperature.
Prepare your hummus. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into a blender, catching any pips in your free hand.
Add the garlic, tahini, paprika, olive oil and lentils to a blender and blitz into a paste.
Taste the hummus, season to taste with salt and pepper and blitz to combine.
