Need a healthy and delicious appetizer for your Superbowl party? I often bring this little appy when I’m heading to a party to make sure that there is at least one healthy option. Then I camp out by the cheese dip and jalapeño poppers (just kidding)! This is a very easy and tasty app that even my lentil and bean-hating husband really likes. Not only is it easy and tasty but it’s super healthy. Take note, my fitness friends, lentils should be in your secret arsenal of muscle building weapons. One cup of cooked lentils contains 18 grams of protein, 40 grams of slow digesting quality carbohydrates, 37% of your daily value of iron, 16g of fiber, but just 1g of fat. Lots of disease fighting nutrients too! Not too shabby, huh?
Whip this lentil dip up by using 1 pkg of Trader Joe’s cooked lentils, 1 container TJ’s bruschetta (or make your own), 1 container TJ’s crumbled feta (optional), chop up some fresh basil and mix it all up! Takes about 1 minute to prep! To be extra healthy, I like to eat it with cucumber slices instead of crackers. Delicious!
