These witlof boats would work great as a dinner party or as a tasty snack with a good glass of red wine. 


Boil the lentils in water, together with the cumin, kurkuma and salt for about 15 to 20 minutes. 
Na de 20 minuten zet je het vuur uit en laat je het linzen mengsel 10 minuten afkoelen.
Leave to cool for 10 minutes.
Put the lentils and the rest of the spices in a food processor and begin to process; allow the machine to produce a smooth puree.
Cut the back of the witlof shoots and peel of the leaves and decorate them on a plate.
Add some hummus on each leaf and crumble the goat cheese and nuts on top.
