Lentil Hummus

During my food detox I was desperate for a dip that I could have with my veggies. So my mom recommended trying to make a lentil hummus, since I was allowed to have lentils.

I totally winged it and it was a success! I’m happpy to share with you my little creation.




Here is my recipe:

1 cup lentils (I used red lentils)

2 cup water

Juice of 1-2 lemons

2 cloves of garlic

4-6 tablespoons of olive oil

1/4 tsp Cumin

Pink Himalayan sea salt to taste


Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and add the dry lentils. Lower heat to a simmer and cook lentils until it has absorbed all the water (approximatley 10-15 minutes.

Once the lentils have cooked, place in a food processor. Add the juice of 1 lemon, olive oil, Cumin and garlic, blend until smooth.

Add Pink Himalayan sea salt, and additional cumin and lemon juice according to taste.
