Lentil Hummus – Have you ever tried hummus with lentils instead of chickpeas? You should! Lentils are high in protein and fiber. Super good for you and your body!
Ever since watching Dr. Greger’s video talking about legumes and how lentils are the most nutrient-packed ones, I’ve been on a mission to incorporate more lentils into my diet. And it’s working really well. I will share some of my favorite lentil recipes on the blog, of course!
First up, a Lentil Hummus recipe, which is

How to make Lentil Hummus
You will need:
- canned, brown lentils
- lemon juice
- tahini (sesame paste)
The basic steps

Step 2: Blend or pulse until it’s a creamy lentil dip. You might have to scrape down the sides.
A thing I’ve learned in my education as a vegan nutritionist, that I’m working on right now, is that we should combine different sources of plant-based protein such as legumes & grains.
And to complement this lentil hummus in the best possible way, I’ve made healthy crackers with whole wheat flour, flax seeds, and pumpkin seeds. I will share the recipe for these next week!
