1. Curried Lentil Hummus

Deep curry seasonings make for lovely holiday fare!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of cooked lentils
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon each yellow curry powder, turmeric, coriander and ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • water, as needed

Directions

Combine all of the ingredients except for the water in your blender or food processor, and blend until nice and smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add water – 1 tablespoon at a time – until you get your desired consistency.

Serve with toasted organic corn chips, pita triangles, and fresh veggies for dipping.

Once went to a party (taking a Vegetarian dish), and overheard the hostess complaining in the kitchen that all the Vegetarian dishes were being eaten and not those containing meat.... Ha! Go Vegan!! (which I now have...)

I'll most likely be saving the recipe for the Quinoa Pilaf! You can do endless things with Quinoa, and it's one of those vegan friendly foods that many non-vegans will enjoy, too. :)

The lentil hummus sounds delicious.

The hummus sounds good, but I'm sorry, sweet and sour potato salad? Um... That is scary.
