1/2 cup Fresh Cilantro, Roughly chopped and tightly packed
3 tablespoons Tahini Paste
2 tablespoons Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Garlic, Minced
2 Limes, Juiced, large
1 1/4 teaspoons Ground Cumin
1/4-1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper, To desired level of spiciness
Black Pepper, To taste
Combine the lentils, water, and salt in a large pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, turn the heat down to medium/low and cook until the lentils are very soft, and the water is absorbed, about 40 minutes.
Add the cooked lentils into a large food processor, along with all remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy, scraping down the sides as necessary.
