    I took this to a potluck and it was very well received. Had a few people ask for the recipe. It got rave reviews from my husband who was licking the bowl when we got home. I left out the caraway (not my favorite flavor), but otherwise made the recipe as written. Will make again!

    Amazing!!! I used steamed lentils from Trader Joes and shallots instead of regular onions. I also added fresh parsley, a tbsp of olive oil (for smoothness) and added chicken broth because it was too thick. this is an outstanding healthy dip!

    Taste was great - wonderful spices and hints of the pine nuts and onions. Texture left something to be desired - needed to be smoother so would take other rater's suggestions and add olive oil or broth. Likewise the pita wedges were baked until they were more like chips. I would bake for only 10 minutes or so next time.

    I made this with green lentils (that's what I had) and minus the pine nuts (didn't have any), and it was fabulous. I really like it with tomato basil wheat thins. Excellent depth of flavor.

    This dip is really good. I don't know much about lentils but I really liked it. I skipped the caraway because I don't like it. Used ancho chili and chipolte chili powder for a little more flavor. Served with veggies instead of pita to make it a gluten free dish as well. I think it would also be good spread on a veggie sandwich.
