Red Lentil Hummus

We try a new ingredient each month. This month is sumac. We purchased 25 pounds of organic red lentils through our co-op and need recipes. Our son does better with lentils than beans. There are many recipes for lentil hummus, and we have combined several recipes using what works best for us. We will serve it with carrot sticks, cucumbers, red bell pepper, and jicama (another new ingredient we tried last year)

This serves 8

2 cups water
1 cup rinsed, soaked, drained rinsed, drained red lentils
cook the lentils in the water for about 20 minutes

In a food processor are the lentils and the following:
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cloves garlic

add the following spices to taste:
salt (we used 1 tsp)
pepper (we used 1/2 tsp)
cumin (we used 1 tsp)
oregano (we used 1/4 tsp)
sumac (we used 1/8 tsp)
