Warm Moroccan spices imbue this unique hummus with a wonderful chorus of flavour. Perfect as an appetizer at holiday gatherings.


  • 3 cups cooked green lentils
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp tahini
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt, plus more to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 medium cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce or harissa
  • 1 tbsp chickpea miso or mellow white miso

Garnish: Extra virgin olive oil, pomegranate arils and chopped fresh parsley


  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. Transfer into a serving dish and enjoy.


Leftovers keep in the refrigerator for one week.

This dip is slightly more runny than a typical hummus, since lentils have more water content. Just FYI!
