Diet Info: DF GF F LF Na LS VG V Fa
Lentils like other legumes have approx. third highest level of proteins and contain dietary fiber and minerals too. And above all, when we eat lentils, we don't need to worry about fat or calories. This dip is yet another healthy and skinny lentil recipe which my family loves to enjoy. Well, not just for health alone, it tastes amazing too. Pink lentils take golden shiny color upon quick cooking. Splash of lemon juice, chili powder and cumin gives this dip a blast of taste. Lentils dips are perfect with a bowl of pretzels, red radish or celery sticks for dipping.
