You know how much I love chickpeas, and you know how much I love hummus, but today I’m going to use red lentils because honestly, I love lentils too! This hummus It’s creamy, tangy, and nicely spiced with turmeric and other curry spices, because sometimes you run out of chickpeas,  or you are intolerant but you still want a dippable snack.

I like dipping my hummus with crackers, to be honest, but they are often carb-heavy, so I opt for veggie sticks like carrots and cucumber. What do you like to dip your hummus with?
