Black Lentil Hummus

Shares

The idea for this recipe came from a man who sold me organic black lentils at the farmer’s market.  “Try making hummus with them,” he said.  “It’s delicious.”  Since the GI of lentils is low and they’re high in fiber, I decided to give it a try.  And I agree, this is delicious- it’s one of the best dip recipes I’ve made.  I serve it with carrot and cucumber sticks.
