  1. HUMMUS: Combine soaked red lentils and all the ingredients into a food processor and process until hummus has achieved a smooth consistency. Add a little water, about 1 tablespoon, if it seems too thick. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. SPICY HERB OIL DRIZZLE: In a food processor put your parsley, basil, mint leaves and Serrano chili pepper and pulse until finely chopped. With the food processor running, add your olive oil, add the oil in a slow stream until you have a desired consistency.
  3. Dribble large amounts of the herb oil all over the hummus making little paths with your finger for the oil to occupy
  4. Dip away or pile high on a sandwich.
