This dip is so silky smooth and delicious and probably the nicest alternative to hummus that I have ever tried. It is high in protein and from start to finish takes less than 20 minutes to do.
No need for soaking chickpeas and peeling them… literally who has the patience for it?? This dip becomes ridiculously creamy within seconds of blending due to the softer nature of red lentils. And it is packed with goodness!
I used our golden helper also know as turmeric and a pinch of black pepper to activate his superpowers. But ginger works beautifully here as well and you can definitely play around with your favourite spices! I bet teaspoon of curry powder would be an amazing addition!
I love it for dipping, spreading or eating by spoon because it is so good!
