    5. 5
      Stir in juice. Combine lentils and onion mixture in a food processor; process until smooth.

      Very nice dip that went well with everything on my Mediterranean meze platter! Despite the name, it is not spicy, but it does have nice flavor to complement everything from flatbread or toasted pita wedges to gyro meat or souvlaki! I think I may have cooked the lentils overlong because there was nothing to drain. Also, if you make the pita crisps, they are just cut into wedges (not split, like I did), or they may burn.
