Since we're feeling warm and homey this holiday season, we're going to focus on another party-centric recipe for this week's From the Nest: the easy-to-make, always a hit walnut lentil dip.
Here's what you need:
• 1 can 15.5 oz. lentils
• 1 cup walnuts
• 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
• 1 tsp natural hickory smoke flavor (you can usually find this in most grocery stores, often near the BBQ sauces)
• 1 tsp nutritional yeast (totally optional, gives it more of a cheesy taste)
• 1 tsp salt
• half a sweet onion
Basically, get all that together, blend on high, pausing from time to time to stir and make sure everything's getting blend finely, and you're good to go. It goes well with rice crackers and sliced up daikon (Japanese radish).
Happy cooking and happy holidays.
