Red Lentil, Lime & Coriander Hummus
An easy recipe for a healthy red lentil hummus flavoured with lime and coriander
- 100 g red lentils
- 1 Lime – juiced
- 2 tbs tahini
- 1 clove garlic
- 10 – 15 stalks fresh coriander – to taste
- 2 tsp olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Rinse the lentils and place in a large pan, cover with water and boil for about 15 minutes until the lentils are soft – if your lentils have been knocking around in the back of the cupboard for some time you will need to cook them for a bit longer.
Once cooked drain through a sieve and rinse well. Use the back of a wooden spoon, or your hands to squeeze as much water from the lentils as you can.
Once cool place the lentils, lime juice, tahini, garlic, coriander and olive oil into a mini chopper or food processor, or use a stick blender in a deep container and whizz until smooth.
Add more coriander and salt and pepper to taste.
Scoop out into a bowl, garnish with a drizzle of olive oil and some coriander leaves and serve with Barbecue Popchips and crudites.
