Mistaken Lentil Dip

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by bernettavan

This is a recipe I made as I opened the wrong can from my pantry. I thought I was opening chick peas for hummus, but I opened Lentils, as it turns out I didn't actually have any chick peas anyway... I have to say it is one of the best mistakes I've made in the kitchen:)

This is a tasty little dip and so quick to whip up. It's easy to adjust the heat, too. I drained and rinsed the lentils before using and didn't find that I needed to add any water. I did use a bit of the jalapeno juice. I also tried baking some with white cheese as suggested. Very good. Made for Spring 2013 PAC

  1. Put all ingredients in a blender of food processor and mix till very smooth, you may need to add a tablespoon of water or two. Be patient, mix it and continue to blend til very smooth.
  2. I put some of this mixture on the bottom of a small oven safe dish, covered with 1 cup or more of a variety of white cheeses and baked under the broiler for 4 minutes, served with pita wedges -- soooo good!
