Traditional hummus becomes very nontraditional with the release of Max Sussman's Lentil Pistachio Hummus recipe. Completely chickpea-free, this savory spread refashions the Mediterranean food dip.

Cookbook writer, chef at 'The Cleveland' and the brilliant mind behind this spread, Max Sussman rethinks traditional hummus with a few delicious adjustments. With enough of the original ingredients, Sussman replaces tahini with pistachio butter and chickpeas with lentils. This rich and bright spread pairs nicely with salty pumpernickel chips and has become quite popular at Sussman's Soho restaurant.

While New York residents can enjoy this spread at 'The Cleveland' restaurant, lentil fans can follow the contemporary recipe posted on Food Republic to make this hummus at home.
