Curried Lentil & Chickpea Dip

Inspired by finding lentil chips (pictured above – they were tasty but not as good as rice chips) at the Bulk Barn one day I took on the challenge of making some lentil hummus. It turned out to be a tasty change from our normal hummus experiments. Any excuse to add lentils to a recipe is a good thing in my mind.

  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Tbsp Each Cumin, Coriander, Tumeric, Curry Powder, Paprika, Salt
  • 1 Can Lentils
  • 1 Can Chickpeas
  • 1 Oz Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cup Water
  1. Saute Garlic and Spices for a few minutes.
  2. Add Lentils, Chickpeas, Water & Lemon Juice and simmer for 10 minutes (I would recommend rinsing the lentils & chickpeas). 
  3. Blend in a food processor – add more water until a dippy-consistency is reached. 
  4. Serve with fresh cilantro and lentil chips.
