Delicious Goat Cheese Lentil Dip with Dill and Capers. Perfect as a dip, a side, or as a spread! Ready in 30 mins!


  • 100 g soft goat cheese (or more as desired)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic (or 1 small raw clove, minced)
  • 1 can cooked brown lentils, drained and rinsed (1 1/2 cup)*
  • 2-3 tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1 medium shallot, finely chopped
  • 2-3 tbsp capers
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  1. Into a medium bowl add the soft goat cheese, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, chopped shallot, roasted or minced garlic, chopped fresh dill and chives, and mix with a fork until everything is well combined.
  2. Add the capers and the lentils. Mix again until it’s well combined, careful not to smush the lentils too much.
  3. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge.


* If you'd like to cook your own lentils, cook 3/4 cup of dry lentils and measure out 1 1/2 cup after they're cooked.
