Lentil and Hummus Naan Flatbread

  • INGREDIENTS:
    • Naan Bread (I used whole wheat store bought!)
    • Hummus – my favorite is supremely spicy but you can use any type!
    • Mixed lentils and chickpea blend- You can buy these in the frozen section or make your own
    • Salt, pepper, seasoning of your choice
    • OPTIONAL ADDITIONS: goat cheese, avocado, balsamic glaze, olive oil, hot sauce
  • DIRECTIONS:
    1. Warm the lentils according to the package instructions
    2. While the lentils are warming, cover the naan with hummus – imagine you are making a pizza and the hummus is the pizza sauce!
    3. Once the lentils are done cooking, put the lentils on the hummus (again you are making a pizza!) and then top with goat cheese and microwave for an addition 30 seconds – 1 minute to warm up the naan and goat cheese.
    4. Top with avocado and whatever seasoning you have! (I had za’atar, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes!)
    5. Enjoy!
  • TIPS: You will have left over lentils! Keep them and use them as a base for a grain bowl for the next day.
  • Pros: This meal is PACKED with plant based protein! You get great fiber, protein, and healthy fats from this meal, and it is delicious.
  • Cons: Store-bought naan is a processed food which we try to avoid. If possible, look at the nutrition facts and find the one with the least amount of added sugars and the most whole grains! If you can’t, find the one that looks the best and enjoy it!
