I gave my family the lime lentils for dinner, it would also work well as a side dish or as an addition to the main course. The smell of lime is mixed with aromatic garlic, and tahini in this company feels perfect. So if you have lentils in your cupboard, this is a good time to reach for it :)

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
