Rich, savory (and addictive!) bites of goodness - these are the best hors d'oeuvres to show off at any party.
Makes approximately 30 appetizers
Black Lentil Ingredients + Directions:
½ cup black lentils
1.5 cups water
Remove any debris, then rinse lentils in a fine mesh colander. Add lentils and water to a small pot and boil. Once boiling, turn down heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes until lentils are al dente (not too soft, not too hard).
Herb Aioli Ingredients + Directions:
1 cup Vegenaise
2 tsp minced garlic
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp lemon or lime juice
¼ tsp freshly cracked pepper
2 tbsp fresh chopped tarragon, or your favorite herb
Mix all ingredients together and set aside. Adjust salt & pepper to taste.
The Perfect Party Appetizer
This is a consistent hit because of it's freaking delicious. The addictive element comes from the aioli and its salt + fat content (Vegenaise = oil = fat). Add garlic and a fresh herb and we've just reached a new level.
