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!
- 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
- Veggies chips and breadsticks of your choice!
First, prepare the lentils | Cook the lentils according to packet instructions | When the lentils are tender, strain them through a sieve and leave them to cool to room temperature
Now, prepare the 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.
