Cook lentils and water on the stovetop. (Be sure to use a large enough saucepan as the lentils will double or triple in size) Bring to a boil, cover tightly, reduce heat, and simmer 5-7 minutes until lentils are tender.
Place cooked lentils and all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor.
Pulse until smooth.
