Apparently, it's football season.
I'm not much of a sports fan, but my husband is a total fanatic. So, for us bloggers, it's actually more like snack season. Which is something I can actually get behind.
I've been trying to find a detox-friendly dip for some time. Something unique and as addicting as spinach artichoke dip, which is really really addicting!
Enter the warm lentil walnut dip. I.can't.stop.eating!
Warm Lentil Walnut Dip
- 3/4 c. raw walnuts (like these)
- 1c. lentils (cooked)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp. tamari (like this)
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 bay leaf
- olive oil
- salt & pepper
Drizzle 2 tbsp olive oil a in frying pan over medium heat, and add onions and the bay leaf. Cook onions until caramelized (about 15 mins). Once cooked, remove the bay leaf and season onions with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, place your walnuts on a baking sheet and toast in oven (400F) for 5-8 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool.
In a high speed blender (or food processor), add lentils, walnuts, and onions. Then add in tamari, lemon juice, and 2tbsp olive oil. Blend until smooth and creamy, then place in a bowl. You're ready to serve!
