Prep time: 25 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes

Ingredients
1 cup dried green lentils
3 cups water or vegetable broth
2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
1/4 cup tahini
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
Salt to taste
 

Instructions
Place the lentils and broth or water into a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring the liquid to a boil. Lower heat and simmer, uncovered, until the lentils are tender but not mushy, about 30 minutes.

Drain the lentils in a colander and return them to the saucepan. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.

Place the lentils, garlic, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, cumin (if using), and salt into the bowl of a food processor fitted with an S-blade. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as needed.

Transfer the finished hummus to a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with pita wedges, crackers or veggies for dipping.

Notes
Feel free to include your favorite hummus stir-in in place of, or along with the cumin.
