Hummus de Lentejas // Lentil Hummus (Español & English)

English version below.

Hummus de Lentejas // Lentil Hummus (Español & English)


Ayer tuvimos celebración familiar en casa y, al igual que en otras ocasiones, los invitados me pidieron que preparara mi Hummus de Lentejas.

El Hummus es una receta típica de la comida árabe, de hecho “hummus” en árabe significa garbanzo, y consiste precisamente en un puré frío de garbanzos, semillas de sésamo molidas, aceite, ajo y zumo de limón. En mi versión también añado comino.


Hace unos años encontré esta receta variante del Hummus tradicional en el Blog Velocidad Cuchara y desde entonces siempre lo he preparado con lentejas. Es sencillísimo y muy rápido de preparar, y os puedo asegurar ¡que está delicioso!

Os dejo los ingredientes:


◦ 400 gr de lentejas cocidas de bote, lavadas y escurridas

◦ 1 diente de ajo

◦ 40 gr de semillas de sésamo tostado 

◦ 1 cucharada de comino molido o en grano

◦ 30 gr de zumo de lima o limón

◦ 70 gr de aceite de oliva virgen extra

◦ 1 cucharadita de sal, o al gusto


Colocáis todos los ingredientes juntos para triturar. Podéis utilizar una batidora para hacer el puré. O bien si hacéis uso de la Thermomix, ponéis todos los ingredientes en el vaso y programáis 30 segundos a vel. 5-10.

Si vas a tener muchos invitados dobla la cantidad de ingredientes y si sobra Hummus (cosa rara...) lo puedes congelar perfectamente y ya lo tienes preparado para otra ocasión.

¡¡A disfrutar!!

We had a family celebration yesterday at home and, as on other occasions, the guests asked me to prepare my Lentil Hummus.

Hummus is a typical recipe of Arab food, in fact "hummus" in Arabic means chickpea, and it consists precisely of a cold puree of chickpeas, sesame seeds grounded, oil, garlic and lemon juice. In my version I also add cumin.


A few years ago I found this variant recipe of the traditional Hummus in the Blog Velocidad Cuchara (in Spanish) and since then I have always prepared it with lentils. It is very simple and very quick to prepare, and I can assure you, it is delicious!

Here you have the ingredients:


◦ 400 gr (14 oz) of cooked lentils, washed and drained

◦ 1 garlic

◦ 40 gr (1-2 oz) of roasted sesame seeds 

◦ 1 tablespoon ground cumin

◦ 30 gr (1-2 oz) of lime or lemon juice

◦ 70 gr (2-3 oz) extra virgin olive oil

◦ Salt to taste


You put all the ingredients at the same time and you can use a blender to make the puree. Or if you use the Thermomix, put all the ingredients in the glass and program 30 seconds at speed 5-10.


If you are going to be many guests, you can double the amount of ingredients and if you don't eat all the Hummus (rare thing ...), you can freeze it perfectly and you already have it prepared for another occasion.

Enjoy it!!

#19 Hahaha... Yes Wayne, that's what I explain in the post. In fact "hummus" means "chick pea" in Arabic. So this is a variant, nothing to do with the original one.

Oh. I just noticed something. I use garbanzo beans (chick peas) and not lentils in my hummus. Lentils could make this a very different hummus. Interesting.

Cumin is supposed to have health benefits for example anti-aging benefits like vitamin E. Your dip looks yummy and thanks for the share.

Excellent! The sesame seeds may also come in the form of tahini - sesame seed paste. These days, it can be found in supermarkets. Here's how to make your own: http://www.inspiredtaste.net/26901/easy-tahini-recipe/

I like roasted garlic and green onions (chives) in mine. Also try roasted peppers.

#15 Yes, give it a try @Dean Owen! Cumin gives a very particular taste... Normally I use pita bread or carrot fingers, but this time we had many children for the party so I chose nachos for them. 😉

Cumin? Interesting addition. Probably matches the nacho chips more than pita. Will try it out soon!
