Lentil Bruschetta Dip
Lentil Bruschetta Dip
It's WeekNight Bite Wednesday! Today I'm taking a page out of Sandra Lee's book and sharing a semi-homemade appetizer with you . . . literally the EASIEST dip you will ever put together. It's 4 ingredients, takes about 3 minutes, and is seriously delicious. This is my go-to appetizer for potlucks with friends, especially when I'm in a rush. This Lentil Bruschetta Dip is amazing served with Ak-Mak Crackers, sliced veggies, pita chips, or on a toasted baguette. By the way friends, it's bru-SKET-ta, not bru-shet-ta. In LA, I don't think you can go wrong with either pronunciation, BUT I'll warn you from personal experience, don't say the second one in Italy unless you want to get a serious eye-roll from the waitress. Ok good, now back to the dip . . . the recipe makes a large amount - enough for 10 - but if you want to make it just for yourself and keep it to snack on throughout the week, the flavors will continue to blend together, and it is just as yummy a couple days later! You ready for this flavorful Italian appetizer? Here we go . . .
1 package (2 1/2 cups) Trader Joe's Steamed Lentils - or cook your own lentils and
allow them to cool before putting together the rest of the ingredients.
1/2 package Trader Joe's Fresh Bruschetta Sauce - drained of some oil first
1/2 cup freshly shaved Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Italian flat-leaf parsley - finely chopped
Salt & pep to taste
I only have one instruction for you - Mix it all together and enjoy! :)

This looks really yummy Linds- I can't wait to try it! I'm always looking for a healthy and easy snack or side dish that I can make on Monday and will last throughout the week.
