This recipe is one of the culinary treasures from ChefGail's trip to Turkey. You’re gonna love it! Not only is it delicious — it’s easy to put together.
In a small pot, add lentils, ½ tsp salt and water.
Bring to a boil, remove any foam, reduce heat to simmer for about 10 minutes or until lentils are just soft, making sure lentils are covered in water and do not dry out during cooking time.
Remove from heat, drain any water and cool.
In a food processor, add cooked lentils, sour cream or yogurt, Parmesan cheese, garlic and roasted red pepper purée.
Process until smooth and while machine is running, add oil.
Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper. Serve with naan, pita triangles or toasted bread slices cut into small toasts.
