“Red lentils tend to be creamier than other types of lentils, so they’re a good choice for making hummus,” says Mangieri. Just cook 1 cup of dried red lentils, allowing them to drain well. Next, add cooked lentils to a food processor with 1 tbsp tahini, 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice, 1 head roasted garlic, and sea salt to taste. Process until smooth, and remember: this is your most basic recipe. Many spices and add-ins will work, according to your tastes; try cumin, paprika, Sriracha, or even Greek yogurt, for an extra-creamy texture, until you find your perfect formula. Serve with chopped veggies, whole-grain crackers, or toasted whole-wheat pita bread.
