So it’s football season again! Every year, I try to come up with some tasty vegan snacks to serve or bring to parties. You may have noticed that I’ve been on a cashew cream kick lately, so naturally, this dip includes cashew cream. I used pre-cooked brown lentils I found at Whole Foods from a company named Melissa’s Steamed Lentils. The combination of roasted red pepper, lentils, and garlic is absolutely delicious. You can serve it with your favorite raw vegetable, vegetable chips, or pita chips. This dip is great to make ahead and can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days. You’ll need two hours to soak the cashews for the cashew cream sauce. You can refer to the recipe for cashew cream sauce here.
