Finely chop the dried apricots and roasted red pepper. Add all of the the ingredients to a bowl, cover and let marinate overnight.
Cook lentils according to package. I made my lentils the evening before for dinner and used the leftovers for this dish. (drain the water from the lentils)
Add all of the ingredients except the water to the bowl of a food processor. Wiz on high for 1-2 minutes. Occasionally stop and scrape down sides. Use the water to thin the hummus to a texture you like.
For a sweeter hummus, add another apricot, for spicer add more jalapeno and crushed red pepper.
This is a huge recipe and perfect for parties. Serve with veggies or cut up pita.
