Our Next Snack: Lentil Chips with Tahini-Free Hummus or Some Garlic White Bean Dip

Yesterday, while searching at Kensington Market's Essence of Life for some safe chips for snacking and dipping, these lentil chips caught my eye.  Mediterranean Snack Food Company has lentil chips that come in a variety of flavors.  I picked up a bag of the Parmesan Garlic Chips, read the ingredient label and checked for allergy warnings.  No traces of tree nuts so all was clear for me.  I opened the bag and snacked on some walking to catch the street car.  Later that day, I emailed the company to double-check allergy safety for my son.  They confirmed that the chips are safe for my family.  There are no sesame or egg products that run on the same line as their chips.  I always like to get allergen information in writing directly from the source, and I keep a running list of safe snacks for my little guy.

  1. We tried the Sea Salt Lentil Chips and loved them! I miss Hummus terribly but I'm going to try your bean dip. It sounds like the perfect substitute!
