When it comes to healthy dips and spreads, hummus gets all of the love and attention. But it’s the mighty lentil that packs a higher protein punch with less fat and calories per serving. The simple, albeit delicious recipe from Baba Cool‘s executive chef Gabriella Mann highlights the velvety texture of the legume as it’s paired with refreshing mint, lemon juice, and garlic. Subtle notes of nutmeg round out the dish to create an appetizer that’s perfect for any summer gathering.
