Hummus is traditionally made from chickpeas. This version is just as tasty, and because lentils have more fiber and protein, it's even healthier.


  • 1 cup cooked red lentils

  • 1 clove chopped garlic

  • 1 tablespoon tahini

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • Salt and pepper

  • Za'atar spice blend


  1. Pulse lentils, garlic, tahini, 3 tablespoons olive oil, and lemon juice in a food processor until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. To serve, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with spice blend.
