Lentil Hummus

Traditional hummus recipe calls for Garbanzo beans, but lentils make a great one as well. With no over-night soaking requirement and short cooking time, dried lentils are perfect one to try if you are new to dried pulses. Plus, hummus can be made a day ahead and chilled for the next day service.

Some school districts found that the students receive better when you call it a "dip" rather than "hummus".
