I thought I loved chickpea hummus…until I tried red lentil hummus. This is a super creamy spread that can be used as a:
- Dip for your favorite raw veggies or sprouted chips
- Topping for your salad
- Mayonnaise replacement in your egg salad
- Filling for avocados
- Spread for your rice cakes (these red rice quinoa cakes are my favorite).
When cooked, red lentils tend to be more mushy than brown lentils. Their texture makes them suitable for dips, soups, and vegetarian “meat” loaf (check out this recipe for Spicy Vegetarian “Meat” Loaf).
