Lentil Dip

This is a great substitute for the traditional refried beans that get thrown out at parties or when friends come over. I am a big snacker and sometimes Hummus just gets old.

1 cup of cooked lentils
1 sweet onion (Chopped)
4 cloves of garlic (minced)
6 tea spoons vegan Margin
1 teaspoon of salt and more to taste

Take the chopped sweet onion, minced garlic and margin into a pan and cook until the onions are soft but not brown. Add in the teaspoon of pepper before pouring the cup of cooked lentils into the pot and stir. Warm them. take the pan away from the heat and spoon out the mixture into a food processor and blend until smooth. Taste and add more pepper if needed.

Serve this with crispy crackers or toasted bread.
