Sweet Potato Soul: Raw Red Lentil Hummus




  • 1 cup dried red lentils, soaked overnight, about 10 hours
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/3 jalapeno, seeded (or 1-2 dry red chili peppers)
  • 2 tsp light miso
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Preparation:
    1. Combine soaked red lentils and all the ingredients (minus the salt and pepper) into a food processor or blender, and process until hummus has achieved a smooth consistency. Add a little water, about 1 tablespoon, if it seems too thick. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    2. Serve in a bowl, and sprinkle on a little Aleppo pepper, or dry chili flakes for an extra kick and color.
