Beluga Lentil Hummus with Caramelised Garlic

Beluga Lentil Hummus with Caramelised Garlic

“I love the drama of this, with the deep back lentils.  Hummus is a common dish, but using the black beluga lentils is an interesting and easy way to make it different. I love the soft caramelised garlic flavour too and this is a great snack or starter.”
