At this time of year there is so much for a cook to do! Expectations of guests present a challenge. Fortunately, this simple "dip" or "spread" is very simple. Best of all, it is delicious. I wish to dedicate the recipe to mon ami tres cher Liz of New Orleans.... —La Bonne Femme

This sound so delicious! I love lentils - my boyfriend not so much. But I bet he would never know he was eating them if I prepared them this way. Thanks!!
