A nice mid-day snack full of fiber, protein, with no added fats, and offering the perfect chance to get in some more veggies. This is my version of the health.com recipe.
You’ll probably want to make it easy on yourself and grab a can of lentils. But, in full disclosure, I’ll have you know that as a Certified Mexican™ I’m a total bean snob and always cook my own from scratch. (Note: Just now in that last sentence I accidentally typed cock instead of cook. I thought you should know.)
But yeah, I totally get it that cooking beans can be daunting and intimidating*
So, fresh from the stove or straight from a can, have your lentils ready and give this dip a try.
*No I don’t. It’s easy.
Lentil Sunflower Dip
-1 can (or 1 C fresh) brown lentils
-1 Tbs. lime juice
-Sea salt and pepper, to taste
-1 to 2 Tbs. sunflower seeds
If using canned lentils, drain and rinse well. Blend everything together except the sunflower seeds and chives. Mix them in at the end. Can’t get any easier!
Now don’t go ruining this shit by downing along a bag of pita chips or some other similar crap. Eat your damn veggies, alright?
