In no arabic country did I ever hear from Red Lentil Hommos but while preparing a soup it cooked too long and was too thick to dilute again. We tried it as a breadspread dip without adding tahini paste. Surprisingly it did turn out very well. Its somewhat yellow color can be made by sprinkling a little curcuma and mixing all together (optional) With parsley and pomgrenade pieces decorated it looked like chickpea dip aka Hommos. Now it will be from now on our own vegan red lentil Hommos.
1 teacup red lentils
2 cups water
1/2 tsp Cumin powder
1/4 tsp curcuma
1/2 Lemon as juice
Boil red lentils add cumin and curcuma, and cook until water dried out. When it’s still corny, use a hand mixer to smooth add the other ingredients. Decorate as you please. Best served with olive oil to dip.
You are free to try it with tahini and tell me how it turns out.
