Red Lentil-Beet Hummus

Active time: 15 minutes Total time: 45 minutes

Our love of hummus has inspired all sorts of new variations, and the hummus shelf at the store has gotten crowded. In this riff on the Middle Eastern dip, we replace chickpeas with cooked red lentils and beets for a vegetable-rich dip. The dramatic red dip is Instagram-ready; all you need is a pretty plate!

RD tip: The lentils make this a filling, fiber-filled snack, which is great for your heart and gut health. Also, if you’re short on time and know you can’t eat for a few hours, this keeps you full and tides you over until your next meal.
