Lovely lentil dip

I am currently mad for black beluga lentils. They hold their shape when cooked, and have a flavour that’s quite different from brown lentils. This dip can be made from any kind of lentils, but if you can get black belugas, give them a try!

1 cup cooked lentils

1 tbsp tahini ( I used black tahini to match my black lentils, but regular tahini works just fine)

3 tbsp no-added-salt tomato paste – did you know Franklin’s Home Brand tomato paste has no added salt, and is much cheaper than the ‘name’ brands?

6 shallots, peeled

1 tsp paprika –  I used smoked paprika because I love that smoky flavour!

juice of 1 lemon

Whiz in food prcoessor or Thermomix until smooth. We had it for lunch today with my Royal Red Coleslaw and some raw vegie sticks.
