This Smoky Red Lentil Hummus is a bit of a game-changer for me! I love the standard hummus in almost all its forms and flavors, but it can feel a bit heavy. Not so with this light and airy Red Lentil Hummus.
I’ve been meaning to post Naf Naf Lentil Soup for a while, but today I was inspired because it has to be the perfect after tax day soup – especially if you’re not getting a refund! Made in minutes with a handful of ingredients, it’s not only absolutely delish, it’s downright cheap to make. It’s modeled after the soup at the fast-casual restaurant, Naf Naf Middle Eastern Grill. I had to stop in a while back to try their Chicken Shawarma, but it was the Lentil Soup that blew me away!
I had some red lentils (which are really orange, so that’s bizarre, isn’t it?) calling to me the other night. Calling at 2:00 a.m. Seriously. I was like “shut up, go to bed.” But that’s the kind of thing that happens when you look at Pinterest before falling asleep. And Red Lentil Dip with a Spanish Flair is what comes of it.
When January rolls around, I like to take stock and go through the pantry to see what needs to be used. This year, merry little red lentils were calling, “Use me! Use me!” Well, I did and made Thai Red Lentil Soup with Coconut & Curry.
I’ve been making a conscientious effort to reduce the amount of red meat my family eats, and I love this recipe that uses just a bit of chorizo and a whisper of bacto on lend enormous flavor the dish. The rest of the flavor comes from the vegetables and wine which marry beautifully with the earthy flavors of the lentils.
