This lentil hummus has a milder taste than our classic Vegan Hummus so it goes better with pita chips or pretzel thins than carrots or peppers. Veggies with stronger flavors may overpower this delicate hummus recipe, but it’s still delicious and a great use for your extra lentils.
Lentils are very nutritious. They’re loaded with potassium, calcium, zinc, niacin and vitamin K, dietary fiber, lean protein, folate and iron.
We made this recipe with the most common of the lentils, brown lentils, but you can use any color you have on hand. Each type of lentil has a slightly different taste, bringing more variety to your lentil hummus experiences.
